I've had a closer look, what happens here is that the
mach_port_mod_refs() call on the rendezvous port fails because the port
type of the rendezvous port is DEADNAME, i.e. the other end dropped the
port.  Indeed, your sending program terminates as soon as it has sent
its message.  You need to make it wait at least a bit for the receiver
to get to receive the credentials.
