Interesting.  The 30-second timeout is therefore the one turned on in the error
handling to try to get a message back from the receiving side.  Usually the
receiving side vanishes before the end of the 30 seconds, so it is unusual to
see that error in this context.

You will need to diagnose why one of the receiving processes (presumably the
receiver, not the generator) is vanishing.  I'd suggest attaching strace
(strace -o FILENAME -p PID) and/or enabling core dumps (ulimit -c unlimited).
