In this case, you have not left.  This comes down to a "normal"
frequency battle.  The scenario you describe happens all the time with
multi-multi's when they move a mult.  After all, how does the
"opportunist" know you're not multi-multi ?  Should moving a mult
require relinquishment of a run frequency ?

 No way !
