[WriteLog] Two WriteLog / MMTTY issues

I also experienced the "PTT stuck on" issue for the first time ever, but
only on Radio 1 / Left Side.  I was running 11.18C and MMTTY.  I don't
recall it being triggered by ALT-K and it was not frequent.

Hi Folks,

I ran WriteLog 11.18C this past weekend, with MMTTY as my primary, and
2-Tone in a clone window.  I'm running FSK (not AFSK) through a microKEYER.

I noticed two differences between how I remember WriteLog working (I've
noticed these before with 11.17):

1.  When I type ALT-K to type in a message, then ALT-K to close it, PTT
usually de-asserts at the end of that message.  But many times it did NOT do
this, and I had to hover over the ESC key to stop transmission when PTT was
stuck on.  Did anyone else notice this, or are there now situations where
PTT will not automatically de-assert (i.e. when you're in the middle of
logging a QSO, vs. not being)?

2.  When running MMTTY in AFC mode, MMTTY would would drift until it
centered on a new caller.  I send the exchange.  Now during the time I'm
copying the other station's exchange, the AFC button use to be OUT, in other
words, MMTTY was locked.  Then after I sent the TU QRZ MMTTY would go back
into AFC.  I did not see the AFC button ever "locking" while receiving the
exchange.  Is this something different resulting from the new OFX (?)
interface between WriteLog and MMTTY?
