Correction: the cursor moved up to the super check partial window, then it
locked up.  Last night, I also had the cursor move into the bandmap window,
then it locked up.  I also played around disabling SCP & not even loading
that big TRMASTER.DTA file - no difference.  Logging some AO-10 contacts
later, I found having the interfaced radio on kept it from locking once,
but if I tried again with it off, it wouldn't hiccup.  I also tried moving
back to 6.05, but of course RESTART.BIN is different, so that didn't help
prove anything & I soon became confused with files scattered hither & yon,
so I gave up & went to bed.

Thanks for confirming that - the lack of any comment about it here had me
beginning to think that I was the only one seeing this... last thing I need
is another one of those problems that nobody else has!
