Thanks much for your response.
I tried BAUD=110 and it slowed down the display of each character, but I
still got the repeats, but maybe I can find something in the code around
there to dink with -- thanks a lot.  I also tried 300 and 1200, but I
didn't notice any change.

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
you spend it?
