Bingo - Thanks Tim.  The manual says you're right.  I set the code speed 
in the config file so that when the newbie starts TR everything's set up 
for him.  I was checking that everything was working OK in the files 
being distributed and, in the process, created a log file and associated 
.RST file.  I had been playing with the speed and, of course Restart 
remembered what I had changed it to.

So, as usual, it's not a bug it's cockpit error.
