lots of VIRTUAL-ACCESS interfaces from a single VIRTUAL-TEMPLATE

I regularly use virtual templates to build ppp multilink connections on point-to-point leased lines. Sometimes I get 1 or 2 "extra" virtual-access intrerfaces that stay down without any harm and that disappear after a while. I imagine this happens after some problem on the connection. This morning I've noticed 5 extra virtual-access interfaces on a newly activated connection. I'm NOT interested in WHY this happened (noticed several serial Interf. resets...), but I whoud like to kwnow HOW TO REMOVE theese interfaces OR HOW TO PREVENT THEM TO APPEAR.

I've checked the config options of the virtual-template, the clear command etc. whithout any success.

With the command "show vtemplate" I get the following output:

Virtual-Template1, pre-cloning is off

Active vaccess number: 1

Generic free vaccess number: 5

Is there any way to configure the template to avoid this behaviour or at least a way to get rid of "extra" interfaces?

Re: lots of VIRTUAL-ACCESS interfaces from a single VIRTUAL-TEMP

Virtual access interfaces stay in memory after they have been created, used, and brought down because they can be re-used. This is by design and a feature. If you reload your box they will disappear, otherwise they will reside in memory awaiting to be used again.
