The receiver changes speed as well, I suppose?

mmm... strange.

Normally not, but it might worth trying.

Anyway, have you tried to use setBaudrate() instead of close() and 
creating a new connection?

I can't see why it should make a difference, but I as well can't see why 
your approach is not working, especially as it works if you do it 

Maybe your target device expects to get something signalled via the 
status lines?
