If I am calling CQ, I always give the callsign followed by the exchange.
When responding to a CQ (as in hunt and pounce) I never give the calling
stations call sign (just something like, "QSL your 59 Nancy Yankee").

I had a similar problem that I solved by creating a wave file for all of
the function keys (F1 through F12). For the function keys I am not using
the file is just a moment of silence. Voice keying has not gone into "la
la" land since. Hope this helps...
