[ct-user] Blip on radio A/B select line

I recently discovered that the latest version of CT that I have (9.36?)
has a funny tendency to blip the radio A/B select line when I change
bands on either radio. This happens with any method of band changing--at
the radio or the PC (via function keys or direct frequency entry in the
call field). Anybody else notice this? Seems to me I heard some mention
of it here before.

Although it's not a huge problem, this bug causes relay clatter and
causes the radio being band-switched to be keyed momentarily with each
band change if you're transmitting on the second radio while
band-switching the first.

For what it's worth, I'm using two Kenwood radios (a TS-850S and a
TS-690S, though both are set up for CT purposes as TS-850s). They are
interfaced to COM1 and COM3, respectively. And also FWIW, I don't think
this problem existed in prior versions--but I have not had a chance to
verify that.

Thanks for any info.
