Well - the same thing happened here at N6TR (under the call K5ZM) when
the operator dozed off and filled up the call window with c's (yes-
he started getting c's at the end of the QSO number).  This is the
computer ID that you can view with Control-J.

This is a BUG in the program!  The characters are overflowing into the
next variable.  For now, DON'T DO THIS!!  I will fix this is version 6.03.
