A short update: The FTDI FT232 drivers only worked once on Windows XP.
Afterwards, they failed again.  Luckily, I sold the FTDI adapter to my
neighbour who needed to connect a GPS receiver to his new laptop computer
that lacked a serial port.  The FTDI adapter works for receiving but not
for sending.

Today, I got two PL-2303 based adapters (9,95 EUR from Reichelt or Conrad),
and I can continue development.  (I had previously borrowed a PL-2303
adapter for a short while.)  I will release new versions of the c2n232
software soon.
