---------------
1. Fix bug where ARIM's busy state not reset when detaching from TNC,
   which prevented attempts to initiate a new operation if ARIM's
   busy state was TRUE at the time.
2. Force reset of ARIM's busy state when the ESC key is pressed.
   ARIM depends on notifications from the TNC which indicate the state
   of the TNC's busy detector. In some cases, ARIM may not receive a
   BUSY FALSE notification when one is expected. This can leave ARIM
   stuck in the [RF CHANNEL BUSY] state, and attempts to start a new
   operation will fail. If this happens, the operator can recover by
   pressing the <ESC> key to reset ARIM's busy state.
3. Remove delay in changing ARIM busy state after receiving BUSY FALSE
   notification from TNC.
4. Update embedded Help and PDF Help file.
