There were some problems with it in 2.0.80 or so. The clear should be
fine in 2.0.88 (I missed the second 8 above).

If what you are saying about the Computone is correct, it sounds like
is broke or messed up in it. I don't know why the NAS would need you to
manuall "poke" it to work. I have seen sites with over 1000 ports
and MAXes) that have less than one "stuck" user a day. Even if the user
gets stcuk, the new user to log into that port will clear it out.
