Does it not use a safe message for logging into the group?  I'd think
with ordered delivery that this wouldn't be an issue.  What's the
message type used on a login attempt?  If the message type is anything
but the same as the disconnection message... well...  that behavior
doesn't make sense to me.  In what cases/situations would this be
desired?  -sc
