I think I need to stop sending mails before triple-checking things!
So sorry for the multiple mails again.

This still looks correct to me.

It actually looks like the reply buffers are swapped properly - taken
out of the req struct into the context on send, then given back to the
appropriate req on reception, so on normal operation there's no problem
with what I described - sorry for crying wolf.

I need to run more tests to explain what happens with the two dds, but
it's easily reproductible with debugs on, I guess that helps with a race
