Are you using the "send" command instead of just calling handlers 
directly? Those won't break unless you put a breakpoint into the handler

most things. Too many "send" commands in a row can set up a chain 
reaction and pending messages will run out of control.

you post the part of your script where it goes off track maybe we'll see
