Very good makes sense, but then why this also hangs forever??

if __name__ == '__main__':
    p1 = Process(target=start_send)
    p2 = Process(target=start_receive)
    p3 = Process(target=start_receive)

I mean now the two receivers are started before the sender does, but
the first receiver gets both messages, is that normal?

In a normal situation probably it won't matter because the first
worker should be busy doing something so the other could get the
message, but just to understand..
