I was forgetting about the MSG_WAITALL flag ...
When I started programming with sockets, it was on a platform (IIRC 
Solaris) that by default behaved like MSG_WAITALL was set by default
(actually, I don't remember it being mentioned at all in the man pages). 
This sort of biased my understanding of the matter. I actually used that
flag recently - on Linux - to get the same behavior I was used to, but 
forgot about that.

My bad :-)
