[Trlog] Another Alt-D Bug

I don't have the alt-D problem, but I'm seeing the "flickering gibberish"
in the upper right hand corner at times.

I'm just running a single radio, but when the mults needed display in the
right corner would come up, it would often be flickering.  I thought it was
my own setup, but now I wonder.  The computer here is an old Compag 33 MHz
with an external CRT monitor and external keyboard.

Anyone else see this outside the alt-D situation?

Yes, I also see the "flickering gibberish" in the right hand corner.

A few other problems:

- The display of bandmap calls in the call window as you tune across the
frequency of bandmap call is erratic.  Sometimes the calls don't appear in
the call window.  I see this most often as I tune up the band.  If I change
direction and tune down the band, the calls start to appear again, even when
I start tuning up the band.  I had the same problem using 6.79 in CQWW CW
using a different radio.

- Using a TS-950SDX, hitting both of the shift keys to clear the RIT while
transmitting does not work reliably.  Hitting either shift key individually
works fine.

I wonder if I'm hitting the wall with my ancient 25 MHz 486 and the changes
in TRLog ?  Never had these problems in 6.69 and earlier (and didn't try
6.70-6.78).  (Side note: I love my old 486.  It has lots of serial and
parallel ports, is relatively immune to RF, and works great with <= 6.69).
