It sounds like WL only hunts up the country file info on initial entry of a 
call.  Try this gimmick.  Edit the E51MAN calls with South Cooks  to 
something completely different, say JA5MAN and see if WL changes the country 
to JA.  If so, edit the call again back to E51MAN and see if WL now comes up 
with North Cooks.  If not you may have to can this log and reimport the ADIF 
file again.
