Steve, Jim,

IRLP is pretty crude about how it does the disconnect from reflectors.  
It merely kills the ispeaker and imike processes so that there is no  
longer anything to receive/send packets from/to the reflector. I guess  
something eventually times out. This is the only thing it can do since  
there is no TCP command channel between nodes and reflectors.

Normal node to node connections disconnect by sending a "disconnect"  
command across the TCP command channel (fifosend).

Not sure what can be done fix this. Since reflectors are receive from  
one, send to many type systems. They literally use firewall rules to  
control which node is the talker and blocks the rest from coming in.  
As there is no TCP channel and the UDP port is blocked if someone else  
is sending, there is no way to a disconnect message in otherwise.

If there are no horses in heaven, then when I die, I want to go where  
they went.
