I've been sent 3 messages while the tab was closed.
The first and the last message were shown while the second was missed by the frontend.

The message reached the frontend as the highlight notification was triggered and the debug mode on the server-tab indicated all three messages.

According to meebey this is a race condition which is related to opening and synchronizing the tab while the next message is already received
