The Unresponsive event only happens when you try to manually
delete the client.

As for the flag not going away, when does it happen? There's a
known bug where the wedged indication appears for all clients,
due to the timer that pings the clients dieing, but it happens
so rarely that I always forget to fix it.

If it only happens for a select few clients which aren't
actually unresponsive then it's hard to say and the most likely
explanation is that they advertise that they'll respond to pings
but for some reason don't. However, I don't think I've seen this
