I used tlf 1.1 pre for November Sweepstakes last weekend. While operating, I noticed some glitches

The Sweepstakes input parsing has some problems. I consistently noted that a precedence of U would get dropped if the fields were not entered in order (I often found myself entering in the order Prec Check Section Serial, as I would fill in Prec Check Section while listening to QSOs before I was answered, then fill in the serial when I finally got the QSO). Precs A and B wouldn't be dropped, prec U was. I suspect the prec code was incompletely updated when U was added. I haven't yet had a chance to look at the code.

I also had a couple or three QSOs where the serial and prec got dropped. I'm not yet sure what lead to this.

:rescore seems to have some problems. At one point, I had 100 QSOs on 80, but noticed after doing a couple of :rescores that it was showing 98 or 97 (doing another :rescore might change it). I exited tlf and re-entered, and the 80 meter count was back to 100, so this doesn't appear to be a loss of QSOs, just that :rescore is missing some QSOs that aren't missed when tlf is started up.

Be nice if we can get fixes before SS Phone. I'll see if I can get time to look at the code.
