[WriteLog] Odd Behavior of Rotator Control

Well, this is truly weird.
Just upgraded to 10.21 and was delighted to see control for my Yaesu rotor
I set the program up to use COM 3 for the rotor since that is what I use for
my other programs(e.g. CT and DxBase).
I select the menu item under "Radio" to move the rotor and nothing happens.
Indeed, the program pauses.
By some freak chance, I selected the packet window while trying to figure
this out and entered a single, random keystroke into the packet window.
The rotor moves properly and the program resumes.
I can run everything nicely if I open the packet window and enter a
keystroke each time I want to move the antenna.
Any ideas? Not exactly the most efficient way to operate.
BTW, Packet on COM 1, Radio (FT-1000MP) on COM 2, Yaesu rotor on COM 3. No
