[WriteLog] MMTTY delay problem

Have you tried checking different soundcard priority options on the Misc

When running WL under XP on an Athlon 1700+, I've found that for one
instance of MMTTY, the "Normal" setting stops the behavior you described.
With two instances (SO2R), "Higher" works best.   Any other combination
results (for me ) in unexplained hangs and carrier with no FSK.

For MMTTY stand-alone, also need to check "Normal."

One of those wierd alchemy things, I guess.  Everyone I've consulted with
about this seems to find a slightly different MMTTY sweet-spot, depending on
the card.  FWIW, am using an SB 16 PCI along with on-board C-Media audio
chip.  Could be worth some cut-and-try.
