This is a very interesting observation.

I would test this out with the BPQ32 radio interface, but my DXSpider machine went kaput, so I need to install on a different box and I have not had the time.

It almost seems as if AGWPE is not returning the hard disconnect to DXSpider or it is not seeing it.  Clearly this is not an issue with a hard disconnect via telnet, or it would have been corrected long ago.

Hopefully a BPQ32/DXSpider user can test this before I get to it.  Make a connection by radio, get some spots, then kill the user radio for a while and see if the user gets dropped by DXSpiser due to a hard disconnect, then reconnect and see if old spots are still queued, they shouldn't be.
