[WriteLog] "Zombie" Packet Windows Writelog 10.73D

Yes this is a bug

So the work around is:

Do not open a packet window unless you start a telnet session.

If setting up for a contest just save the configuration without packet checked.

If you do open Writelog with packet, just remember to start a telnet session.
It is not too bad once you get used to the problem.

Hopefully this will be fixed with the next update.

> You now have a zombie packet window that cannot be closed.
> Starting WriteLog again will create another instance.
