BUT you could be calling a network function with the wrong buffer length
or something like that.. so the kernel is sending whatever garbage is
following your packet in memory.

You could run your program through strace and see what the exact
parameters to the systems calls are. I would say it is 99% likely
that there is a bug in your program.

5.0 is ancient. Upgrade to a modern kernel and libc etc and see
if the problem still exists.
