The same thing that happened to Bob also happened to me, a couple of times 
in the SS phone which I was able to recover from. Unfortunately in SS CW 
with about a half hour to go this happened to me when I was digging out a 
weak "7", the exchange field popped into the call field and the call of the 
"7" went right out of my head. I felt that I shouldn't continue because I 
had to delete the entry and the Serial numbers would be wrong from then on.
I know I could have fixed it up later.My concern is I hope I wasn't a 
needed mult for the chap.
