I sent a private reply to Tree on this which bounced from his 

I have to say that I do not agree with the above. The values in my 
stdcfg.dat file are global for the most part, and I do *not* want them 
overwritten by some unseen file specific to a contest, which may not be 
my flavour in fact. I now realise that my difficulties originated when 
I abandoned the INPUT CONFIG FILE statement in favour of stdcfg.dat 
which seemed  like a good idea at the time, but now does not!

Not for me it doesn't!, works for CQ MENU, but I restate that in 6.56 
at least, it does *not* work for EX MENU, unless this is also some 
weirdness of "hidden" files overwriting.
