This is what I believe.

Yes, but,... at some time, if they are not terminated or disconnected
correctly, we will have reached some limit and will have to end the
process of those "ghost" manually.

How can I tell? I call them "ghosts" because they do not seem to use
any CPU time anymore and have not for quite a while. Is there a way
to tell?

In our case our user has 6 hour set. But, when they are disconnected,
how does FB know the connection is turned off? These I believe are
the "ghosts" still thinking that there is a connection but really the
app that called the FB has been disconnected and not really Closed.
Not sure if that is the way Citrix handles it.
