EKOS - Focus no longer suspends guiding

3.5.7 (beta)
Initial conditions: running sequence with filter changes - autofocus on filter change - checkbox selected for "supend guiding" in focuser tab
Expected result - Guiding should pause (used to)
Actual: Guiding continues and had to manually disable the two axis checkboxes (since under scheduler if you STOP guiding it will be put back ON)

This is new behavior within a couple of builds as the suspend was good in the past

should be simple to replicate

Currently focus suspends guiding if the focus camera uses the SAME OTA as the guide camera. Is this the case?

I actually tried tonight for the first time to focus every 60 min.
The guiding was not suspended.
It was on different OTA (guiding - on guiding scope/camera, acquiring - on main scope/camera).
Now I know - that's by design. Worked well.

Yes - I am configured to use my imaging scope via OAG - as I was having issue guiding (a mechanical issue now solved) the guider was having kittens since the focus was constantly changing due to the focus routing - this ended up in a situation where I could not focus, so position changes causing guider craziness causing focus problems-> a feedback loop of horrors :-)

If you let me know the area in code I could write up a change and test it out - back a awhile ago I do remember seeing the guiding pause when focus was happening even with my guide scope (maybe I was dreaming :-) )
