[Twisted-Python] IRC & Excess-Flood

I'm in the process of writing an IRC component to an app I've made.
All seems to work fine, except when it comes to output a lot of data it 
gets booted from the IRC server for flooding :o)

*** Quits: SearchBot (Excess Flood)

However, it doesn't seem to just disconnect as clientConnectionLost 
doesn't get called.

In the logs, it says:
 'Stopping factory <__builtin__.IRCClientFactoryFromService instance at 

Any ideas on what I can do to stop it happening?
For the moment I'm just going to throttle the output by making each 
message have a delay using callLater, but it would be nice to work out 
whats happening!

Cheers :o)
