Notes:

In state Join, when event “Receive Prune (*,*,RP)” occurs and also in state Prune Pending, when event “Expiry Timer Expires” occurs, a situation occurs where an interface will be pruned possibly more rapidly than expected as in J state, when prune is received, PP state is entered and Prune-pending timer is started, but Expiry timer is not reset/halted/etc and this does have an effect in PP state. This issue is not handled in the detailed description on page 48. Is this intentional?
