wpostemsg doesn't always cache events if it can't pass them on to the TEC
server.  If I recall correctly, when the local oserv process is dead,
wpostemsg fails without caching the event.  As a result, some events that
should go from NetView to TEC are lost.  Because of this, my organization
uses postemsg instead of wpostesmg.  We tested and discovered this at least
a year ago, so for all I know this could have been fixed by now.
