[IP] Prime after disconnect

We have found that we must prime after disconnecting for a while.  It
sometimes takes 0.5 units to get a drip from the tubing before we reconnect.
We don't suspend the pump during disconnection but we are on a low basal
rate, .01 and .02 units per hour.  So we thought that it would just keep the
tubing full and ready to go, but that is not what we have seen in practice.

Any comments to us newbies?
