Focus after flip?

Over the last couple of nights, I just noticed something. I have my scheduler check boxes set to automatically track, focus, align, and guide. It does all of this correctly at the start of the job. However, I just noticed that it doesn't perform the focus at the meridian flip. It performs the track, align and guiding just fine. I'm wondering if others have this issue? It's a problem for me due to the mirror flop on my SCT... the images are usually not in good focus after the flip. I have periodic focusing setup in the capture tab, so it eventually focuses... but I lose several frames until then.

Any ideas?
