It digi's it one last time and appends QRT* at the end, 
showing it has been stopped. So if a packet comes in the 
violates the hop count, it sends out one more. It looks 
like this:

  1:Fm KA2FNK-1 To S9PQ4Y Via N0AN-3,QRT* <UI pid=F0 
Len=15 >[10:34:22]

Note that there is no path, just a single packet 
announcing the "termination" of the path.

Hope this helps. AGWUIDigi has a few bugs that are being 
worked on as we speak, but in general it works very well. 
It is going to be a VERY nice utility. I'm currently 
running it at N0AN as my main digi and am very pleased 
with its development. By bugs, I don't mean it crashes...I 
mean it doesn't handle callsign substitution quite 
correctly yet (it does digi-peat correctly, and decrement, 
but the callsign sub is not right yet).
