I thought in a case like this that CTRL-Q sent "QTC 32/4 QRV?" and 
you could only send DL0BD 4 QTCs even if you had 100 available.  
That's the impression I got anyway.

I was wondering about something like this, but I just guessed that 
the QTCs must be handled sequentially down the log without a LOT of 
re-programming.  That's why I thought the program sent 32/4 in the 
example above.

Absolutely.  The QTC feature works so well, it makes me wish other 
contests besides the WAE had QTCs!  :-)

I just wish condx had been better and I had been more motivated to 
operate....   :-(
