comment cat corrupts serial port data
Ah, please update your question to indicate that you've also got an app reading from the serial port. That explains the corruption as the bytes on the serial port are "consumed" when read, so only one app can see them.

comment My computer won't shut off normally
Could be waiting for some background/daemon process to exit cleanly? Try exiting/killing/stopping background services and perhaps try removing network/external storage and see if the shutdown proceeds more smoothly.
