This has two sides: yes, BEEP requires to reply in the same orderas
messages are received, and yes, Vortex do implement a mechanism to
detect, store and unlock the caller for those replies out of order. See
vortex_channel.c:2264 (1.0) and vortex_channel.c:2327 (1.1).

Definitely, this code shouldn't be required unless there is a bug in the
vortex engine or in the application on top if it...In fact there is a
regression test to check this situation (test_11). I'll check this test
since it can be more aggressive.
