[TRLog] "phantom contest" bug and other stuff

I experienced this one too with 6.30. The first time I launched it without
a LOGCFG.DAT, it showed a blank entry as the first contest on the screen.
For curiousity's sake, I selected the blank contest and was immediately
dumped to a C:\> prompt. Ran it again and the "phantom" contest
Something else I noted during the SprINT.. Someone with a poorly adjusted
bug kept sending "6o6" as his name, so I decided I'd better use control-N to
put a note in my log to make sure I didn't get docked a QSO.. And at the
next QSO, it tried to send part of my note as the name. (My apologies to
N0AX - it was bad enough I forwarded him "6o6" as a name, but then to screw
up sending it to him the first time too?!) There was one other occasion
where I entered a control-N note in my log & it tried to send part of the
note as the name.
I *think* it was pulling the word that came closest to the column where the
name would have been if there were a QSO on that line instead of a note.
Tree, what's the procedure for getting a contest added to the startup
screen? I think maybe by this time next year, we'll have properly debugged
.DOM and .CFG files for the Tennessee QSO Party...
(who sure wishes his problems with M$ software were this trivial!)
