utils.pause does not pause event #137

It seems that session is using utils.pause to pause the requests getting in to chain. But the "pause" does not remove existing listeners at all. So the existing listeners will still accept new events, and when pause.end/resume is called, the same events will be triggered twice.
There may be other side effects too.
Looks like a bug. Any idea?

sounds like it could be a bug. would be nice if we had some test coverage for these


If we can stop the store.get for a second, and send some data to the server in the mean while, we may can see the duplicated events.

I tried the following code.
(function() {
var connect, endofit, events, obj, pause, sys, util;
connect = require('connect');
util = connect.utils;
sys = require('sys');
events = require('events');
obj = new events.EventEmitter();
obj.on('data', function(data) {
return sys.print('data:' + data + '\n');
obj.on('end', function(data) {
return sys.print('end:' + data + '\n');
obj.emit('data', 'test data1');
pause = util.pause(obj);
obj.emit('data', 'test 222');
sys.print('after pause\n');
obj.emit('data', 'test 333');
endofit = function() {
sys.print('before resume\n');
return pause.resume();
setTimeout(endofit, 1000);

Output is like this:

data:test data1
data:test 222
after pause
data:test 333
before resume
data:test 222
data:test 333

yeah good call, we can test the util much easier than the implementation, ill try and get to this soonish
