[TRLog] troubles with "reworking the contest"

I agree, I must be doing something wrong. However, I copied LOG.DAT to LOG.TMP and
then typed TR READ LOG.TMP. After a bunch of beeps and strange characters on the
screen, the computer locked up. After re-booting I found that my original log was
corrupted and the new log (log.tmp) had some QSO's removed and some more added onto
the end. Is it because my original log was left in the same directory?
