Messages relating to "unhandled packet" are typically from not having any
blocks to distributed to a client requesting a block.  This is the normal
message that would be generated in such a case.  Yes, it is vague, and yes
that is intentional.  The 300+ build proxies are very module based in
design to permit easy future expansion, and so any non-positive packet
response will produce that message.
