I am not specifically tagging the message as crash or direct. I am just
writing the message and saving it. I was assuming that D'B would take care of
the routing if there are no other specifics provided.

OK. I get that. No problem.

But here's an interesting thing. I created a message for Tommi at 2:221/1.1
and D'B queued it up to poll 2:221/1 as expected! But, this happened:

20200217 21:55:21 [9780] BEGIN standalone, binkd/1.1a-99/Win32 -C -pv
20200217 21:55:21 [9780] clientmgr started
20200217 21:55:21 [9780] the queue is empty, quitting...

..and the message just seems to get dropped. Sad
