Bob, 8.3 in a KPC-3 Plus should function correctly..... 8.2 (KPC-3 non
plus) had the bug.. and ROM 7265 was the last version of the original

  9.0 on the plus had bugs but those with fixed with version 9.1

   So I think that probably the UITRACE might not have the WIDE
(WIDE,30) in it. That's assuming that your running a full digi and not a
fill in.
