I noticed this as well, when entering in my log afterwards (need to do 
some work on the shack 286).  It happens on seemingly random DXCC 
countries, esp. all Canada calls, and the VK.  There are a couple more 
that happened, don't remember offhand which ones.

While I don't know how Tree has the program written, I'm not so sure.
It causes the call window to blank, but going back to the call window 
and hitting any key brings the call back, and then you just delete what 
you typed.

Very strange.
