[TRLog] 6.30 bug

This is sort of a strange bug.  In the contest menu, when you don't have 
a logcfg.dat set up, it creates a dummy contest.  It seems to vary 
around.  On my 266 MHz computer with W95, it will create a contest that 
is gibberish, but with part of my call in it, sort of like: 

You can even select this as a contest, but upon hitting enter, TR drops 
you with the message that it is an invalid contest.

Most of the time, this dummy contest is in the lower right hand corner, 
but sometimes it is in the top left hand corner.

On computer #2 (a P75 with DOS 6.22/Windows 3.11) this bug represents 
itself differently.  It will create a blank line as the dummy contest, 
but with the same other symptoms.  It also repeated the YO DX contest 
twice at one point.

One other note: the SAC contest does not appear on the menu...could this 
have anything to do with it?  On each computer I took the 6.30 files and 
overwrote the 6.28 files.

Just something strange...
