I would decouple the log display from the serial handling routines -
by delegating the serial task to a thread, only display of log is handled in
the main thread (this is true whether your application is cli-only or gui - 
have the tasks that should not be interrupted, like bulk serial communication, 
handled by a thread, and whatever the thread wants to display, use a buffer (like TThreadList) to
communicate to the main thread.
