[WriteLog] strange function key behavior

During cqww rtty I had some strange behavior of the function keys. I am 
using Writelog 11.21 with Windows 7

I would end up with one function key sending different message each time 
it was pressed. Or several function keys sending the same message 

The trigger event seemed to be when I pressed two function keys in quick 
succession - for example, I wanted to send my "zone" message two times. 
Or I have one function key that sends my call twice and another that 
sends my call once. I I press the key to send my call twice and then 
quickly press the key to send my call once, only the two call message 
got sent. Later when I pressed another key, to send a report, the single 
call message would go out.

I have never seen this problem before. I have always been able to 
interleave calls on both radios and to be able to "chain" calls together 
in the past.

Shutting Writelog down and restarting cleared up the problem until i 
pressed another two keys too quickly.

Anyone seen this problem? I get to be w1aw/4 on rtty in a week; i don't 
want to run into this issue then.
