SSDR V2.4.10 and Winkeyer Oddities

Earlier this autumn I downgraded from 2.6.2 to 2.4.10 and finds timing so much better when using CW and as a bonus the previously reported (and acknowledged by Flex) power drop-out has not been seen. I usually have my paddle attached to the front of my 6500 and control the speed using Maestro. So far so good. Today I was playing around with my logging program DX4Win, and it do have a built-in keyboard that can be handy when sending call in a pile-up. But I realised while the message is sent , the program have somehow lost it's ability to control the CW-speed! Restarting DX4Win, radio and CAT, no change. Tested N1MM which usually work nice, it can (sort of) adjust speed but inserts spaces when sending faster than 20 wpm -ish.. Tried CwType a very neat CW-keyboard program, and it cannot adjust speed. Restarted computer (Win7), started SSDR and adjusting CW from SSDR works fine, but the issue, controlling speed from other services does not. All the mentioned programs did work earlier on using 2.51 and 2.6.1/2.6.2... and pretty sure also 2.4.9. Opened a LOG in SSDR CAT and the speed commands appears, but no reaction from the built-in keyer. I guess I could start to upgrade, and verify all is ok, and then go down again.

But before I do this, maybe others using 2.4.10 have noticed the same issue?

    No one??

    It seems N1MM sends the speed command twice... and it works, but DX4Win sends this only once and does not alter the speed. I would love to hear from someone that understands what is going on!

    This is a log from what is going on on my serial port:

    Wow... just stumbled on one of my OWN old posting need to upgrade my memory 😁 ..... This is from 2017!!!!

    "After loosing the ability to set speed of the in-built Winkeyer from DX4Win (but still working from N1MM+) I felt time to down grade. So re-installed 1.9.13 and downgraded f/w... all seems back to normal. I can now use IQ-1 stream to skimmer and also adjust speed from DX4Win but this required a h/w reset also."

    I have opened a ticket, but so far have not heard a single beep! I bet this could be helpful!
