The video driver on one of my machines intercepts ALT-F5  before it ever 
gets to the program, so ALT-F5 doesn't work. During the ARRL CW I 
sometimes forgot and started a new run frequency without returning from 
a spot.  Usually this happened after chasing a spot to another band, 
then dialing around to settle in. If I did this and chased a new spot, 
on return I would be on the wrong band. After I figured out what was 
going on, I got used to saving the new run freq in a second VFO in case 
I was "sent to the twilight zone" on return. I would just load VFO A 
from VFO B and life was  good again.
