Rick, K7GDN also spotted this problem.  As the result of his report, we've 
got this fixed already for the next NA release.

In looking at the NA code, we've determined that this bug effects only 
Field Day with its "category/section" format.  Since the ARRL does not 
request (or want) logs for Field Day, this bug will not effect your entry.
