Try /server, tsunami was giving me troubles earlier too. will autosearch for any free server.

I should have made this more clear.  Any Handler that isn't being held up by
a previous gated Handler is free to process at will.  So indeed the Debug
handler does just that as soon as it's got all the data.

I'm not sure about that... have to give it some more thought.

See my last message. :)  That's not really the same as the "gated" thing.
Gating is about processing, and there's a different mechanism by which you
choose to forward events or not, I think.
