[ct-user] Dup QSO number in Sweepstakes SSB logs

Ran into this problem using CT 9.81 in the ARRL SS phone contest.

The screen where I enter the QSOs showed the same number 213 twice.  I 
exited CT and restarted the program but it still showed the QSO twice.

This occurred after I started up CT after shutting down for a while.  The 
band automatically shows 20 M.  I made 1 QSO before I noticed the error (I 
was actually on 40 M).  I moved the cursor up to the first QSO # 213 and 
changed the band using the ALT-F1.  Not sure if I just move the cursor down 
to the command line or I hit the enter key to bring me down so I could 
enter the next QSO.

The next QSO now has the same number (213) but I not notice it until I 
entered the next QSO but I manually gave out the correct QSO number.  I 
exited CT and restarted it but the QSO still had a duplicate.  Entered a 
dummy QSO from me to me so I could get the count back in order.  I can 
manually edit the .ALL file and the .LOG to get rid of the error before 
send off the logs to the ARRL.

Has any one else seen this problem?
