It happened again. I'm using 2.4.1 now.
There was one animated image in the conversation window.
I asked the other party (one message from me).
He answered with text + animated image.
I typed another text message.
Only after 10 seconds did my message appear in the conversation.
Right after that the answer form the other guy came, this time
just an animated icon. (I guess some people love animations... ;-)
