[Skimmertalk] Aggregator v2.4 question (kaz)

Version 2.4 of Aggregator included a number of changes to speed up spot
processing under traffic loads seen during major contests. These
included removing the ability to scroll back the displays on the Skimmer
Traffic and Status tabs.
Continuing to use version 2.3 is not a good idea. It can result in
spots from your Skimmers being sent to the RBN late. Because of this
the RBN rejected spots from earlier versions of Aggregator during the
ARRL DX contest and I expect this will continue during major contests.

Scrubbed a CPU of Vista in favor of win XP, and loaded newest versions
of skimmer and aggregator.
I noticed v2.4 of aggregator did not appear to have retained the scroll
bar on the "skimmer traffic" window. Is that intentional? Was the
cumulative history causing aggregator problems when it grew too large?
[That would possibly explain some crashes here]
For the time being, I wound up falling back to v2.3 so I can use the
history in the traffic window for debugging my ailing 15m softrock. At
some point I'll have them all tied together and reporting up to RBN with
a single aggregator, just not there yet.
Going in to WPX I expect to try to monitor the softrock skimmers here
for mirror image problems. Certain to happen with large signals. The
dynamic range on 15m is poor, and 20m only slightly better.
