Ok, I just ran a find command for SendAddonMessage as per your post and it found nothing when it was actually SendAddonChatMessage.

How often does that really happen, anyway?
How often an error happens is irrelevant to a glitch existing in any form. Also, I would like to know how much of a delay you would consider "infinitesimally small". The time for any data request to reach the servers and come back with a reply will always be at least the user's ping time. Depending on the connection, this would vary, but should not be easily dismissed as a negligible amount. Note observed ping rates have been in the range of 200-1000+ ms. This is pretty much the range of 1/5 of a second to a full second delay.
