Sorry - at present I cannot guarantee that SD will show
WinKey's speed correctly.  I'm working on a fix.

Did anyone else notice this?  Or, does it happen under
any particular circumstances?

For mixed-mode contests the "mode" selection question
means "mode now" rather than a fixed mode for the whole
contest.  I will change the question accordingly.  In
mixed-mode contests, as sefined in the corresponding
template file, SD lets you change mode regardless of
the initial mode selected.

I could do this but a scroll feature would need an initial
command (or a unique initial keystroke) - in the same
way that HELP opens a Help window that can then be
scrolled.  What command should I use?

There's a feature in SD that lets you check the status of
any "area" multiplier just by typing the abbreviation in
the callsign field.  For example, in CQWW, typing 14 
gives the multiplier status for Zone 14 (by band). 

For some reason (now forgotten) this feature was disabled
in contests where, as with 7QP, the mults count once only
regardless of band or mode.  I've checked, and this is
easy to reinstate.  Then, for example, typing MTFAL would
show the mult status for Fallon County in MT.  Would that
