Les G4OGB advised me of the problem a week ago, and it is
fixed for the next update.

This problem arose because of a "conflict" between the
large number of multipliers listed in the multiplier
window for OK/OM, and the need to truncate it to display
the QSO Rate window,

It happens once two or more QSOs have been logged, when
the callsign field is non-blank and the time, in seconds,
ends in 5 or 0 - corresponding to the time SD updates
the QSO Rate window.

I found that tabbing three times would restore the
cursor for another 5 seconds, and preserve the callsign.

> My concern is with CQWWCW though tests show no problem

No need to worry - it's not an issue in CQWW :-)
