Disconnecting a session...NOT!

Greetings, all!

I am having a problem consistently with CUSM .70b12 (68K) -- When done with
a reflector (and I choose Disconnect), I continue to get the data stream.
Eventually, it "reconnects" without any prompting whatsoever. I am using
PPP on a PowerBook 540.

This also happens when I choose "Stop Receiving".

Because the bandwidth of the stream does not allow much else to happen, it
then prevents me from opening a CUSM connection to another reflector,
receiving mail, or reading news.

I have found that if I ping and UDP myself (using MacTCP Watcher), usually
it solves the problem and closes the connection.

Any ideas?
