It does appear the Alt-F4 feature is broken, at least with regards to 
returning to your original frequency.  Unfortunately, I won't be able to 
fix this before the weekend.

As a workaround, I would suggest pressing the "A=B" key before pulling the 
spot, then you can use the "A<>B" swap key to return to your original
