[aprssig] Delayed packets

I seldom use the APRS-IS for input to my aprs station, except for NWS,
and for tracking my friends on their trips.
There is a station 85 miles from the station I am tracking. Since I am
getting the station I am tracking from the APRS-IS via a filter, I see
all the I-Gate stations callsigns.. This one station constantly has my
tracked station jump backwards with a "delayed" packet by as much as a
two minute delay...
Is this a Findu issue of Dupe checking because too short of dupe
checking time cycle, or, how could the I-Gate in question delay
I-Gateing by as much as two minutes, and have the tracked station jump
backwards with his delayed packet?
This station does this on a regular basis for any mobile I have tracked
via the internet that gets its packet digipeated out to the Rockford
area from the Chicagoland area. The sysop said he does not know why his
I-Gate could do this.
I do not know, and I haven't heard about a means of an I-Gate client
being able to dupe check stations it is about to put on the APRS-IS, but
I sure can see that in this case, they all should??
