I think in this case, the Max requested the session be terminated because it
knows the first part of the MP session went down already (might be related
to "stacking" between different maxes. We only have 35 stop records
containing 46 as a disc. cause out of 547126 stop records. We're using a
mix of a Max 4004, few 4048s, and a 4002 -- all using TAOS 7.0.22.
