IGMP multicast with Dell PowerConnect 2808

I'm playing around with a Dell PowerConnect 2808 switch before deploying it for a production use. One thing I tested was multicast and IGMP snooping support

After configuring IGMP snooping as per the manual, I found each port continued to receive the multicast streams after the clients left the stream.

It appears to get IGMP joins and leaves working as expected, one needs to define a multicast bridge group for that multicast IP first.
