[Dxspider-support] Spider crash when node unset while connected?

Hi All

>From the snippet of debug file that I have attached, I can only assume that
someone used a RCMD to 'unset/node GB7CGL-1' (maybe Eric) while GB7CGL-1 was
connected to GB7WDX.  This seems to have crashed GB7WDX and then given a lot
of 'invalid characters' when GB7CGL-1 reconnected as a user.

Maybe the unset/node command needs to check if the node is connected at the
time, and disconnect it cleanly first, before changing the status of the
node.  This is assuming that it doesn't already check, as I haven't gone
into the code yet.
