'fixed' this.
It appears to only be a problem when changing bands, and still doesn't set
the mode right, even if it the change of band did not involve a change of

An old miser kept a tame jackdaw, that used to steal pieces of money, and
hide them in a hole, which a cat observing, asked, "Why he would hoard up
those round shining things that he could make no use of?" "Why," said the
jackdaw, "my master has a whole chestfull, and makes no more use of them
that I do." -Jonathan Swift, satirist (1667-1745)
