Speed is fine in Dueling-CQ.  The problem is that it does not force TR-Log
into CQ-mode.  If TR-Log is in S&P mode when Dueling-CQ is invoked, then it
stays there and your S&P exchange is sent when you answer a reply to your
CQ.  I think TR-Log should force CQ-mode when you invoke Dueling-CQ so that
your CQ exchange message is sent and the logging sequence is correct.  (It
is easy enough to set CQ mode with Shift-Tab while Dueling-CQ is running,
but often I'm not paying attention to that detail.)

That's right.  Again, that's not the problem.  The problem is that with
6.92, the CW speed in AUTO-CQ is fixed at about 25 wpm and does not track
whatever speed is set for normal CW.  In other words, if CW speed is set at
35 wpm, AUTO-CQ still sends at 25 wpm.
