.. and stupidly, my reset code does this:

* wait for tx/rx to finish
* bump reset counter

rather than what it should be doing, which is:

* bump reset counter
* wait for tx/rx to finish

because TX will continue if the reset flag isn't set. And I bet that's
what is going on.

Thanks for pointing this out Kim! I'll add this to the PR you create
and push out a fix to HEAD for you to try ASAP.
