Interesting that this happens, because it shouldn't. Clients are supposed to get regular updates of the IPs in the swarm from the tracker. The tracker is supposed to purge IPs that don't check in. In our case, if a client doesn't refresh within 30 minutes, their IP is discarded. Of course, if the client isn't braindead, when it closes, it is supposed to send a message to the tracker to drop it from the swarms.

Then there is the problem of DHT - if a client is using it then it doesn't check the trackers for swarm info, it uses IP lists from other DHT users, which need to be accurate, but often aren't...
