I also notice the anomaly when AF AGC is engaged.

If the decay rate is set to less than 6 dB/s the AGC hangs for the 
prescribed period, but the decay rate acts as if it's essentially 
infinity. This results in severe audio distortion with many pops.

My O II has been on all day and I have NOT seen the anomaly described 
for the spectrum display. What I *did* notice is a tiny horizontal 
red "dash," about 1 mm long, that appeared at the same vertical level 
as the filter width display, roughly above the blue spectrum tuning index.

While I'm sure that this list is monitored by TT, because this is 
listed as a beta release, is there a conduit for bug reports like 
this? I don't mean feature requests, such as "Make the blue tuning 
index a vertical line," etc., but true buggy behavior, like odd lines 
appearing on the spectrum display and strange behavior by the AF AGC.
