At this point that code is going to be deprecated in the very forseeable future with the completely rewritten code in git-master; I'm unlikely to spend any real time debugging/changing the old code at this point.

It's probably getting the data from another sensor; deleting a source wouldn't likely delete all the references to it for historical data.

The new capture/remote source is 100% rewritten so there's not a ton of value in trying to dig through the old code, sorry - you can try playing with git master though...
