Maybe a synchronisation issue? If you send a message before the other 
party is connected it gets dropped. If that's the case, you can use 
style_load_balancing to ensure the messages aren't dropped when the 
other peer is not available at the moment.

Return true from server's error_handler. That'll prevent the crash.
