Three odd behaviors using the Flex control knob

More "testing" results for the software guys... 1) As I tune to either end of the display and the display begins to scroll, there are momentary hic-ups in the audio... split second drop-outs. They reoccur every 5-8 kHz or so as I continue to tune. 2) When I have two panadapters open, in this case the top on 80 and the bottom on 10 meters.... As I tune on 80 with the flex control knob the lower pan window shows and increased, spiky "noise" all across the display until I stop tuning, then goes back to normal. 3) There have been some times, especially when tuning through SWL bands using a very wide spectrum pan, that the flex control will stop responding for a couple of seconds, then rush to catch up long after I have stopped tuning. Then it begins acting very sluggishly and unpredictably. Ken - NM9P BTW - I am having a lot of fun.. getting great audio reports. nice receive, and did I say this is a heck of a lot of fun. But I am going to give this rig the run through for a couple of days in order to "earn my keep" for the early release.

    Ken, All three of your reports have been turned into bug reports and have been entered into the developer's bug tracker for additional investigation. Thank you for the report.

    The number 2 behavior got me at FD this year but with only one slice open.  Any time the flex control or the mouse wheel was used to move frequency, the noise level spiked to almost three times the normal level.  Very hard to track stations near the noise floor.  Is there any solution to this yet?
