           program. If you have elected to put new heats at front of program, COMPMNGR
           alerts you that it has done so. If not (new heats are inserted in body of
           program) COMPMNGR assigns a "relative" heat number (e.g. if inserted after
           heat 12, the relative heat number is 12A).

--------------------------------------------------
10-06-1999 Started Version 2.01
--------------------------------------------------
10-06-1999 John Adams found a deeply buried bug in the scrutineering. Under rare
           circumstances (like when something changed in a heat AFTER placements
           were stored and you try to recall them for editing) the Abort, Retry,
           Ignore box popped up and, if you selected Ignore, the dances in a multi-
           dance were duplicated (e.g. (W/T) became (W/T/W/T). When I repaired that
           bug, I did some other cleanup having to do with recalling prevous data.
10-05-1999 Added feature to handle repechage rounds, in which couples eliminated in

07-31-1999 Improved scrutineering logic related to recalling previous placements

           (3) a man's number changed in a heat after placements are made
