Bug report #6318
"Download from GPS" stops to work after adding a new device in "GPS Device Editor"

I was trying to add in "GPS Device Editor" the necessary strings to allow me download the tracks from a usb and bluetooth data loggers.
I tested first the strings in GPSBabel/Osgeo4w and they were working, then I "translated" them to be added in QGIS, example:
gpsbabel -t -i skytraq -f COM6 -o gpx -F d:/tracks/test.gpx
%babel -t -i skytraq -f "%in" -o gpx -F "%out"
and I started to be frustrated because I got just messages like
The layer d:/tracks/test.gpx?type=track is not a valid layer and can not be added to the map
I was start thinking that I was making a mistake in defining the download string, but then i noticed that the "garmin serial" device/strings, available out of the box in QGIS stopped also to work.
I tested to remove my newly created device at no avail.
I then removed qgis, cleaned the registry and re-installed QGIS, and now the "garmin serial" device works again. If I add again a new device everything stops to work again.
