Let me state first that I have yet to acquire much experience with
GCL's socket code, but I am interested in doing so and in ensuring
that the interface is robust and easy to use.  I do have experience in
this area in C.

In any case, a quick look through your example indicates that these
functions expect magic header bytes at the beginning of each exchange,
i.e. as when our-write is feeding data to our-read-with-offset.  The
relevant functions triggering your abort are in gcl-tk/comm.c

Needless to say, this should not be required.  There may be more
general interface functions elsewhere in the code -- I'll try to give
a more thorough look soon.  Suggestions/other experience most welcome.

Take care,
