That is what you get for telling a fib!  

It is unlikely that your accidental shutdown caused this problem, but
I can;t totally rule it out since I don't know for sure (yet) what 
exactly caused your problem.

Can you tell me more about the circumstances of the lockups?  Also,
a peek at your LOGCFG.DAT file would be nice - so I can fully
understand your configuration.  

In other news, I spent some quality time with the program during the
contest - stopping and fixing things as I found them.  The DVK can
now record from TR without any TSR programs being installed.  I think
this should fix any problems people were seeing before.  Lots of
little things cleaned up - like Control-Enter sending voice messages
when it shouldn't and the beam heading window overflowing with entries 
like KH8/N5OLS (now just shows KH8).

I will put out a new release in a week or so with all of the issues
raised from this weekend addressed.
