I agree and disagree.

I don't think it's bad to have the zero pointers show up. After all,
they are QSOs, even if they don't count. (And they _might_ count as
mults even if they don't give you points.) But I have been gnawing at
Tree (does one gnaw at trees?) off-and-on for a long time that TR should
not count dupes in the QSO total. By definition, _one_ of the two QSOs
is busted, so why count them both?

To date, Tree has ignored my requests, but perhaps if others feel the 
same way that I do, he might change his mind. It has been known to 
happen. :-)

(Also, it would make it easier to compare QSO counts with those 
stone-age stations using that other piece of software.)
