Merge server events into user timeline

We are sending events to Amplitude using the Androis/ios sdk, and from time to time we also send events from our server. I have noticed that the server evets do not get integrated into the user sessions.
My expectation is that server events (with session_id = -1) will be merged into the correct session based on the event time.

Is that possible?

Attached is a screenshot of a sample event stream with the issue:

Too bad... What about the usage of this event in Funnel analysis, will it be treated correctly according to its time although it's out of session?
