gen_tcp bug ?

Is This a bug ? I surely consider it weird and unexpected.

Run a:srv() in one shell and then a:cli() in another?

I'd expect the call to gen_tcp:recv(Fd, 100) to return
{ok, Bin} where size(Bin) == 50 in the second call. That is
how unix read() works. As it is now, it's not good and severely
violates the "principle of least surprise"

What do you think.

I realize that the prefered mode of operation is to do

    gen_tcp:recv(Fd, 0)

But ......
