[WriteLog] CW Red Box question - Any help?

By the way, the red box is a great thing and I like a lot but...

The red box keeps on in a pre-defined time written  in ini file. I have 
mine in 850ms. This works fine if the cw speed is between 28-30 wpm but 
it is not ok if the cw speed is much lower, let's say 22-24 wpm (or 
quicker 36wpm). This is something could happen in several cases. For 
example  if you go in low bands or in a multi environment where many 
operators use the same radio but they prefer different operation speed. 
I have seen in wintest that this time is not predefined and stops almost 
before the last letter is transmitting. It would be perfect if Wayne 
improve this nice feature. Tnx in advance...
