Double clicking on the band button crashes the radio

Tim, I tried the "Report A Problem" selection but I did not get a confirmation so I'll add it here.
Two problems (at least on my 6700 Version 0.12.17 & Win 7) that I did not see on the "Community" need to be added to the list you generated.
1. If you "Double Click" on a Band Button it will freeze the spectrum display, you
can still select other functions but the display is dead. It also removes the 6700
from the radio select start screen so you have to reboot to start over.
2. The ATU will not function correctly in CW mode. It cycles quickly and returns
with the bypass mode on and "success" in the window but it does not tune
the antenna. You will not realize this with a dummy load or perfect antenna
(i.e. Step IR). But if you have a none perfect antenna it will give you a high
SWR. The work around is to switch to SSB mode, tune the antenna, then
go back to CW.
These 2 problems will repeat every time on my radio and the double click is a real gotcha to me because I have been double clicking for as long as I remember.
Thanks. Al N4AB

Yes, both of these issue have been previously reported. The first one will be fixed in the next release of SmartSDR Preview. The other one is in the bug tracker.
