The radio does not respond to the requests for frequency information 
when the VFO knob is being turned.  It saves them all up until the 
knob stops turning, then all of them get responded to.

So - TR doens't know that the frequency is changing - it just knows 
that there doesn't appear to be a radio hooked up to the computer
any more.  TR could be smart and stop polling the radio - until it
gets an answer from a previous request - but that really doesn't 
change what happens from the user's perspective.

It doesn't seem to take long for all of the responses to come back.
