Yes, I've noticed that. It was introduced in ver 0.70b14 (or b13), it was not
in ver 0.70b12.

One way to fix it is to click on Push-to-talk, wait a second, click on it
again. Then do the same on the speaker button.

Sound stopping is not specific for for NASA Select. I got the same problem
when setting up a reflector chain to send the Kenzaburo Oe speach
(if you missed the announcement of it, it was because the CU-SEEME-L list
was broken at the time).
