I downloaded the Windows binary distribution of this great library to give it a try, and I found some issues:
- The installer lacks one OpenSSL library (easy to fix!)
- Running the OMR server and the Vortex-Client tool will crash in the following scenario:
  * Start the server
  * start the client tool
  * conect to the server
  * create a new channel
  * send a message and answer yes when asked for replies
The 10 replies (ANS) and the NUL are received, but the client will hang and after a while will crash.

Based on this, I decided to check out the code to try to understand the root cause of the problem.
My current underatnding is that VORTEX_FRAME_TYPE_NUL are not properly processed in vortex-reader.c
The Reader will wait for ever in the asynchronous queue until the timeout expires (100s I think), when in fact
the NUL message has been received and forwarded to the handler. 
I haven't investigate further (this is just a few hours playing with this).
One final question, is based on the fact that ANS messages are processed through a queue, how are processed unordered received ANS/NUL?

Best Regards,
