This will depend on what version of the reflector code is running, and your
particular settings. The older Cornell reflector code doesn't support a few
things that the White Pine reflector does. This problem mostly due to
packets getting buffered on their way to you.

In the cu-seeme.ini file look at the [Settings] section for the following:

Disconnect Duration=3D8
Lock Out on Disconnect=3D1
Lock Out Duration=3D15

These are the DEFAULT values, and can be changed if you want to edit the ini
file manually. Here is how Steve Edgar explained the settings to me:
