None of those things seen in 170+/- QSOs here with 6.56. if that helps
narrow down the source.  

The only problem I had was that the exchange memory would insert the
country multiplier of non-Russian stations in the exchange field, which
blocked logging QSOs.  Turning it off meant that I lost the chance to see
oblast data on stations I'd worked before -- not a big deal, but
