6600M running 2.4.9

Precondition: 
CW mode with TX enabled, tune VFO

Scenario 1: 
1. Press TX button to disable transmit
2. Close telegraph key -> no TX, but sidetone is enabled (this is a good thing!)
3. Release telegraph key and briefly adjust VFO
4. Close telegraph key -> no sidetone (this is undesirable)

Scenario 2:
1. Press TX button to disable transmit
2. Close telegraph key -> steady sidetone is produced
3. While holding telegraph key closed, briefly adjust VFO 
4. Release key ->  sidetone continues (locks up)
5. Press TX button -> TX turns red, sidetone continues, but no power output is indicated
6. Press TX again -> red TX LED turns off and continuous sidetone ceases
