I think the problem exists with some contesting software. Say someone 
spots BD2X, which would be a new multiplier -- so it shows up in the 
packet window. Someone else correctly spots 6D2X, who you've already 
worked on that band. Since you've already worked, the corrected spot 
doesn't appear, since the software filters it out. 

However, if someone spots BD2XBUSTED, the software interprets it 
similarly to BD2X, and displays it.
