You don't read from a accept-datagram socket: the data is delivered
with the message.

How about "Three days ago"?  It's fixed in MC 2.4.2 beta 3.
Unfortunately you can't use that engine with RR yet, but they're
supposed to start their own beta testing on their next release using
that engine RSN.

This was just a chance occurrance, though, because things like this
are not guaranteed to happen: we still have not received a bug report
on this issue, and if things are not reported they will often just
slip through the cracks...
