You might want to check and see if N2ZZ-5 is using a newer KPC3+ in KISS
mode. It seems that in KISS mode, the TNC delays packets sent to the client
after a few weeks of operation. That is a TNC issue and not a UI-View issue.
The operator could set UI-View to restart every day (schedule editor) which
would in effect restart the TNC in KISS mode each time it is restarted. It's
a work-around for a TNC issue.
