Broken Collaboration

We currently have a bug in Croquet where if you are connected to a group of peers and bring up the pop-up button menu, if you click on the top left x to make the pop-up go away, the remote parties get an error because they do not have this object. The pop-up is not a replicated object, hence the meta message that gets sent has no where to go. This is where the TeaTime architecture will be required. In this case, all of the overlay objects will be placed into the users personal TeaParty - hence it will not generate any replicated messages. Until this is in place, we will probably have to ignore messages that are sent to non-existent remote objects.
