We had this same problem. It wasn't evident on all the 'puters but 3 out of
4. Same version as Joe.
386~486 Dos 6.2 4~8mb Ram.
nettsr over com4.
2 Magitronic ez2000 nic's, 1 3c509, 1 Etherexpress 16 over rg58 network.
Sometimes it would disable entering anything unless you exited out of CT and
restarted. If you had entered a call and moved to the next field the call
would stay but if you were moving to the next field as the log got updated
from the other stations, it was fine.
The 4th station that didn't exhibit the problem was the Novice station.
They only made 30 or so contacts anyway so maybe they didn't see the problem
due to lack of activity.
