[erlang-questions] Crash in diameter_sctp:peeloff/3

Hi,

It seems that is possible to get an DIAMETER sctp socket into
a situation where diameter_sctp:peeloff/3 will crash with:

2016-01-25 15:07:34 =ERROR REPORT====

This most likely happens when the incoming connection is terminated very
quickly after it has been established. I looked at the code and the possible
error returns of get_sctp:peeloff/2 are not handled.

To me, this looks like a valid socket shutdown that should be handled
gracefully instead of crashing?
