The problem is not the slash but the length. The error is in
searchlog.c's load_callmaster function, where, although the callmaster
array is defined as char callmasterarray[MAX_CALLMASTER][9], calls are
cut *after* the 9th character. This results in concatenating the calls
indefinitely as long as they are longer than 8 characters. For
example, if callmaster contains EA8/DJ1YFK/P, EA8/PA0R/P, EA8ZZ in a
row, the callmaster array entry for EA8/DJ1YFK/P will become

Diff attached, which cuts the callsigns properly.

Still left to discuss whether one should only include calls without
"/"s in the callmaster, or maybe just enlarge the array to, say, 15
characters. RAM limitations shouldn't be a matter nowadays? A quick
awk script to generate a 'stripped' version of the actual master.scp
for TLF would be trivial to write.
