Thanks for the information. Everything else about this counter is perfect so I can live with hitting the run button.
The 53132 and 53131 behave oddly when the frequency is dropped. Apparently
they do some sort of pre-scaling thing in their firmware. When you drop
frequency 100:1 at a 1 second gate time it indeed can take quite a while for
it to figure out what's going on.
Simple fix - poke the run button when you change frequency.
