[Spread-users] BUFFER_TOO_SHORT && endian_mismatch >= 0

We have a Spread application that is periodically failing with an
unexpected BUFFER_TOO_SHORT error from SP_receive(). We're using the
Python wrapper, which normally hides those errors and retries
SP_receive() with a larger buffer. So it should not actually be
possible to see the error in Python code.
The one exception, however, is if endian_mismatch would be >= 0. n
that case. the Python wrapper raises an exception. It looks like this
is happening, but there's nothin in the docs that suggests
endian_mismatch could be non-negative. (Unfortunately, I don't know
what the actual value is.)
I glanced at the code in sp.c and couldn't rule out the possibility
that endian_mismatch was 0, although it doesn't seem like the code is
intended to set it to 0.
Any ideas? Is it possible to get a non-negative endian_mismatch? If
yes, what would it mean?
