I think you have mistaken what the active connections thing is indicating,
and/or haven't waited long enough to see them go down.

Connections stay "active" for some time after they go idle.  Eventually,
if no new traffic appears, they will terminate, but what that is
displaying is the number of TCP connections that currently exist, whether
they are in use or not.  When the connection eventually terminates due to
lack of use, /then/ you should see the status drop the number of active
connections accordingly.

IIRC, pan 0.14.x did the same thing, altho of course you only had
connections to one server unless you switched servers and started
additional connections since PAN then didn't do automatic multiserver as
it does now.  Thus, there's been no change in what that bit of the status
