There is a variable called $main::$bumpexisting which, as default, is 
set 1. This allows users to connect from another terminal and it will 
disconnect any existing connection.

I would suggest that you look in your scripts directory and check that 
you don't have a 'set/var $main::$bumpexisting 0' in there anywhere.

Other than that, I can see no reason why your node should behave any 
differently from everybody else.
