[WriteLog] Intermittent PTT Dropout

Well my Autosave is set to 10 so I don't think that is the problem. In fact
you can often see the Autosave engage while transmitting without it
interrupting anything. 

Connie K5CM has an interesting solution. Unfortunately I'm in /W4 right now
so can't try it.

One other possibility - just a guess - is the autosave feature may be
interrupting things. Try turning autosave off next time. I believe you have
to edit the writelog.ini file to do this.

I notice when you get a large number of Qs in the log autosave can take a
while. This might explain why it only happens after hours of operating.
