for wpx ct knows to count them as prefix multipliers, but it won't know 
how to score them since it can't tell what country they are to figure 
out the continent.  if you logged them in a cqww or arrl contest log it 
would mark them as unknown countries and they would not show in 
multiplier list.

x5=bosnian serbs
t0=principality of seborga

yes, if you want ct to score properly you will have to add them to the 
cty.dat file for ct-9, or the cqww.cty for older versions.  or you could 
put them in during the contest by typing the following for each one in 
the callsign field:    x5=s5    and    t0=i
