I finally caught it with gdb, after inserting some debug probes. Excerpts
(removed a few syntax errors):

(gdb) bt
#0 0xffffe405 in __kernel_vsyscall ()
#1 0x55840885 in raise () from /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6

917 abort();
(gdb) print msghdr
$1 = {msg_name = 0x8197b14, msg_namelen = 28, msg_iov = 0x561519e0, msg_iovlen = 1, msg_control = 0x809a810, msg_controllen = 52, msg_flags = 0}
(gdb) print msghdr.msg_name
$2 = (void *) 0x8197b14
(gdb) print (char *)msghdr.msg_name
$3 = 0x8197b14 ""
(gdb) print ((char *)msghdr.msg_name)[0]
$4 = 0 '\0'
(gdb) print ((char *)msghdr.msg_name)[27]
$5 = 0 '\0'
(gdb) print ((char *)msghdr.msg_control)[0]
$6 = 20 '\024'
(gdb) print ((char *)msghdr.msg_control)[51]
$7 = -66 '¾'
(gdb) print *(msghdr.msg_iov)
$9 = {iov_base = 0x8171208, iov_len = 4096}
(gdb) print ((char*)msghdr.msg_iov.iov_base)[0]
$10 = -30 'â'
(gdb) print ((char*)msghdr.msg_iov.iov_base)[4095]
$11 = -66 '¾'
(gdb) print sock->fd
$12 = 22
(gdb) print recvmsg(sock->fd, &msghdr, 0)
$14 = 42
IOW, the call that just failed suddenly worked in the debugger. I can't
really believe this is a BIND bug anymore... I'm lost here. Anyone?
