Actually you're not losing them, because ejabberd puts such messages in
offline storage, so after reconnection you will get them.

Regarding time window and other: as you understand if the database is
unavailable ejabberd needs to store those messages somewhere. This
requires some buffering with tricky callbacks which is quite an effort
to write.
