[ct-user] CT.988 & WPX

We had problems with the check px window (f-10) it would not show dupes
all the time so it was worthless for s&p.  to do s&p we had to use check
call (f-9) instead.... it would be nice to fix the dupe message at the
bottom of the logging screen so it wouldn't disappear so fast most of
the time so we don't have to look at the f9/f10 window to see if someone
is a dupe.
