After extensive testing by our best beta tester (thats me Smile) we have concluded that USB to Serial cables are NO GOOD for Rfid stuff!!

We have been able to reproduce constant errors using these cable things, it seems they cannot cope with the continued data coming at them and drop bits at random causing the plugin to "think" tag status is different to what it actually is.

This in turn causes events to trigger wrongly... please AVOID using these.

Probably good advice for lots of HA related devices. I have to say though my edgeport serial to usb has done very nicely so far, though I have had the same disappointing experiences using those usb to serial adapters.
