[amsat-bb] ARISSatTLM Soundcard Re-Start

I have noticed that if the soundcard is stopped and then re-started 
within ARISSatTLM, that there is no further decode of telemetry.  Upon 
soundcard re-start the audio level resumes activity and proper level, 
the CW search marker (blue) hops around as usual and locks onto the CW 
beacon, but the data search marker (red) freezes in a random position 
and there is no decode from this point on.  Only by re-starting the 
whole ARISSatTLM program can decode be re-established.

The program decodes nicely with ARISSat-1 at two degrees or less above 
my horizon (with C.P. Yagi at 6 feet), so absolutely no issues there.

Is this a known "feature" of this version, or should I question my machine?
