[asterisk-dev] Does Asterisk 'queue' DTMFs?

Hi all,

I'm thinking of using Asterisk to control a game-like application with
DTMF key presses, but I've noticed that if I press the keys very
quickly, Asterisk 'queues' the DTMF tones and they are passed to
Asterisk delayed.

To test this I made an AGi with an infinite loop and used read
function to read just one digita an after I made it sleep for 0,5
secs. I spected the DTMFs to get 'lost', but they aren't.

Does asterisk queue the DTMF tones? If so, can anyone point me to the
code part where this is done? I'm thinking of not buffering them,
because for this applcation they don't need to be...

Thanks in advance,
