[na-user] CQP (?) Dupe Checking Glitch

Running the CQP this weekend, I found that the dupe checking worked sometimes 
and not at others.

I did start the contest with "QTH must match for dupe" not enabled, and 
switched it on somewhere fairly early on.  I don't recall seeing the problem 
before it was enabled, but there was no correlation I could detect between 
dupes where the original qsos made before or after it was enabled.

The problem was that entering a call and hitting a space would not alert that 
is was a dupe, although the check station window did show the previous qso.  
If the non-alerted dupe was entered, it would be recorded as a dupe.  Perhaps 
half of the (dupe) qsos would be properly alerted, and half not.
