Whilst this might sound daft, are you sure you don't have the "independent
speed between pot and COM port" setting enabled in Win-Test?
Options->WinKey configuration.

I notice some irregularities with speed: 

I created a new log file, CQWW CW, and interfaced the WinKey. I then
edited the F1 CW message to read: $MYCALL ++++TEST----

Pressing F1 first time is fine, and the "TEST" is sped up. However, on
subsequent presses of F1, the "TEST" is not speeded up and is sent at
the same speed as the rest of the message.

The only way I can overcome the issue is to change the CW speed either
using the speed POT on the MicroKeyer itself or in Win-Test using
Alt-F9/F10. For example, if sending at 34wpm, I will have to do Alt-F9
to take the speed down to 32wpm, followed by Alt-F10 which will put the
speed back to 34wpm - I have to do this each time before sending the
subsequent message for the speeded up parts to work, however. 

Any ideas? Using the WinKey in the MicroKeyer.
