I was looking at the Arduino Fio schematic, and noticed the FTDI VCC pin is connected to the Xbee VCC. Isn't the FTDI cable VCC 5v? Wouldn't this fry the Xbee if you plug in the FTDI cable while the Xbee is plugged in? Shouldn't the FTDI VCC really go to the max1555 chip?

I am a noob, so I am assuming I am missing something.
