[SD-User] Rig control, keying not working on startup

SD 15.21
Windows XP Pro SP3

I had previously configured COM1 for rig control and LPT1 for keying of 
my Ten-Tec Omni 7 and both were working correctly.

Firing up SD for another practice session for upcoming SS-CW, I found 
that the band and frequency weren't displayed correctly, and that the 
transmitter wasn't being keyed, although "CW Keyer, Esc to exit" was 
displayed for the time it should have taken for a message to be sent.

Entering the PORTS command, the correct info for the CW port (51) and the 
rig control port (Com1) was displayed, and all the parameters for speed, 
etc. were displayed correctly.

Returning to the program, I found that rig control and keying were now 
operating correctly.

Exiting and re-starting SD didn't fix anything, nor did rebooting Windows.

Any suggestions?
