I'm trying to imagine why OtpMbox.send(OtpPid,OtpErlangObject) would
ever need to read a socket. Perhaps it needs to consult EPMB to find
where lookup the receiver for the OtpPid you are sending to.

several years on and off. I am very I interested to learn the cause of
the problem you are seeing and how to solve it.
