That was my fault. In one experiment with CTWin, I had changed polling time
from 1/2 second to every five seconds and forgot to back it out. I changed
that back today.

Ref to Jose's notes regarding the time. I also had a situation where
the time incremented in 5 or 6 seconds hacks. Not a problem for me as
SOLP, search and pounce. Only thing it affected seemed to be
AUTOSAVE. Unless the time hit HR:00:00 there was no AUTOSAVE. Once I
noticed this I would type in a SAVELOG after making several Q's.
Otherwise it worked perfectly for me as a straight logger/dupe
checker. I did not use any other bell and whistles or functions by my
I was using WIN98SE. I thought perhaps my PC was causing this time
jump problem even though I had not seen it happen previously in other
contests with other CTWIN versions. I hit CTL/ALT/DEL and turned off
all other programs running in the CLOSE PROGRAM Window except for
EXPLORER and SYSTRAY, but that did not keep the second count from
jumping in 5 or 6 second steps.
I also noted not being to use the mouse to move things around but
having read that this is normal did not worry about it.
