Thanks for the hints, Chris. I'll have a play with it if I get the 

However, I am saving TLF for next year...we'll be using either good 
old CT (DOS) or else Writelog. The reason is that TLF lacks a feature 
that I consider to be essential for CW contesting. 

This feature is a pipe-line in the keyer. One needs to be able to come 
back to a caller with a partial (say: only the prefix and part of the 
suffix) typed on the callsign field.

As the keyer sends this partial call, the op completes the callsign 
field before the keyer catches up. As a result, the full callsign 
goes out on the air.

With TLF/cwdaemon, the operator - who has copied the callsign in his 
head - must have the full callsign correctly typed into the callsign 
field _before_ he can reply. No needs to be able to 
seamlessly tail-end the caller.
