Subject: strange channel behavior 

we have probably some minor network problems which causes some channels not beeing available at all times even on the same computer.

example:
if you open the Striptool and Probe at the same time and access the same channel, one of the tools can see the channel, the other doesn't.
Or one tools sees a different value, e.g. if i change the setpoint of the temp loop, probe still sees the old value, but the Striptool already the new one.
Sometimes it helps if you close the application and after restarting it everything is fine. Same for the framebuilder. Sometimes some of the channels get lost.
I don't know where it comes from. It happens randomly to any of the channels. It's not the traffic on the network, but could be some routing problem.
