Thus far I've not had too much of an issue with ghosting.....with time. Of course I keep my glorious Ennerdale in the pipe marked for its worship, but for some reason I don't get that much staying power with 1792. If I have a bowl or two of 1792 in a pipe, I give it a good cleaning and then smoke neutral (typically burley) blends for a while.

On the bright side, it eventually abates. On the other bright side (my glass if half full, and the other half is full of life-giving air!), I get a nice 1792 essence added to the smoke for a few bowls.
