Hi Ervin (and others),

I just found time to add your last changes to TLF. Thanks for finding
the problem.

There is still one problem with your solution which you should sort out:
fldigi_get_log_call() is called from background_process which runs as a
separate thread parallel to the logging front end function logit().
That may be ok for just polling fldigi and displaying the
received text in the rtty window. But for manipulating hiscall and
displaying the according country information it may result in problems
as both - your function and callinput() may manipulate the same data.
Furthermore neither getctydata() nor searchlog() are checked to be
threadsafe, so calling it from the background thread may be

I have added the code as is to get forward with the 1.3.1 release but
you should sort out the problems in next time.

And just another wish: Please do not add every global variable into
main.c (there are already much to much there). Put it where it
logically belongs (see my last commit).

73, de Tom DL1JBE
