Apparently this is a problem since the introduction of version 10.  While I would never operate a CW contest with CT running in a DOS window (keying gets messed up, if nothing else), with version 9 I could "run" CT in the DOS window for purposes of entering the setup parameters before the contest, etc. -- thus avoiding the lengthy process of closing Windows, rebooting to DOS, doing the pre-contest CT setup, closing DOS, and rebooting Windows.  As John has noted, this is no longer possible because of the glitch he reports above.   I understand that there's no "guarantees" about CT for DOS running in a DOS window, but it sure was convenient back in version 9.  (Hint, hint....)
