Hmmm, that sounds like it could be lossage somewhere in the UDP message
system, or at the very least, it's not transactional all the way to the
viewer. I believe the current plan is to have these migrated to a web
service which the viewer will talk to via the cap server, taking the
simulator out of the picture and making it a lot easier to make it
transactional all the way to the viewer.
