I personally haven't used corectl for ages, it's not part of regular
testing, it's not unlikely that it silently broke.

RTnet should trigger terminations for resource-holding tasks and also
drivers by now. That is unrelated to corectl and was addressed by
Philippe a while back. Maybe not completely, though.
