[avahi] Discovery (or better removal) takes ages

I've integrated AVAHI into oxine (an OSD-only frontend to xine-lib). I use it to
discover available Apple Airport Express on the local network.
What I've noticed is that - while discovering an airport express that is there
takes no time at all - noticing that an airport express has vanished from the
network (e.g. been shut down) takes more than an hour.
I can reproduce this behaviour using the tool avahi-discover. It's obvious, that
this behaviour is not acceptable, as a user wants to see the devices that are
there at the moment and not devices that were there an hour ago.
Is this a bug? Is there a parameter I can set to have AVAHI poll more often for
the devices? Or do I have to poll for them myself?
I'd be thankful for any help.
