Sorry about commenting late in the game.  I'm a bit lost


SOCK_SEQPACKET
Provides sequenced, reliable, bidirectional, connection-mode transmission paths for records. A record can be sent using one or more output operations and received using one or more input operations, but a single operation never transfers part of more than one record. Record boundaries are visible to the receiver via the MSG_EOR flag.

it's supposed to be reliable - how is it legal to drop packets?
