Net+OS CC9P-9215 I2C lockup after error

I’m communicating with a number of devices on I2C, which is fine as long as all are present.
However if a device is missing for any reason, the communication fails, and the bus locks up such that its no longer possible to talk to anything.
Is there anything which should be done after such an error to recover the situation? (The documentation is silent on the subject)
