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.
