Sure does sound like RF getting into the keying cct.  During the recent 
RAC Winter contest I had the pleasure of using the Beta version of ct 
9.38 for the contest.  On 80m I had smoked my matching
network on my distant inverted L early in the contest so was forced to
use a low directly overhead Windom.  I could get away with only
10w (yes ten watts) of RF on 80m CW otherwise the thing would
stay keyed up.  I too, was asking for it with poor grounds on 'puter
and an unshielded keying interface.  However, I can run 1kW on
10m or 20m w/ no RFI trouble.  Go figure.
