My thanks to James Decker, a longtime observer of the Texas Lege, who did yeoman's work to figure out and summarize the last thing that happened before the people's filibuster broke out:

A parliamentary inquiry concerning the chair’s failure to recognize a member who offered a privileged motion to adjourn during a vote to call the previous question and end debate on a motion to table appealing the decision of the chair sustaining the point of order that ended the filibuster.

Hope that clears things up!
