Bingo - Thanks Tim. The manual says you're right. I set the code speed
in the config file so that when the newbie starts TR everything's set up
for him. I was checking that everything was working OK in the files
being distributed and, in the process, created a log file and associated
.RST file. I had been playing with the speed and, of course Restart
remembered what I had changed it to.
So, as usual, it's not a bug it's cockpit error.
