I am starting to see a lot of tos-bsl errors of the format:

$ tos-bsl --telosb -c /dev/ttyUSB0 -r -e -I -p main.hex
MSP430 Bootstrap Loader Version: 1.39-telos-8

An error occoured:
Bootstrap loader synchronization error

According to this post the issue is related to ports not being released properly. Opening and closing the device in a serial console (like cutecom) fixes the problem.
