When multiple messages are generated on a single tick, you are presented with 
the first one and the next is put on a back log list which will be picked from 
on the next tick.  To give an example, if on the exact same tick you had 10 
people die, it will require the game to run for at least 10 ticks before you 
finally see the last death message.  I say at least, because other messages 
could also have been piling up before the people died to begin with.  When you 
have such a monstrous population, there is going to be a huge back log of 
messages since there are so many people doing things.  One solution is to 
disable as many message types as you can do without, and the other solution is 
to pause the game often and press the guave/tilde (~) key to pull the next back 
logged message out to be read.
