Multiple uploads with no reset Fw: GEMS software versions

The City of Ottawa (GEMS-1-5-10) has reported that
When downloading to Memory Card the Program Memory Card screen changes the
status from Modem to Accu-Vote.

I have tried to duplicate this without
success using GEMS 1-7-5.

They also reported when uploading in the Receive Election Results screen
that the status changes to Accu-Vote from modem after the first

In fact it does and locks out any further uploads from other Accu-Votes at
different locations.  It appears that it retains the phone line and allows
successive Memory Cards to uploaded without having to redial.

The port must be highlighted, then the Stop key clicked, highlighted again
then Start to re-activate for the next reception.

There does not seem to be any process to terminate the mult-card upload and
reset for the next Accu-Vote.
