Err. AFAIK, "error code 0" means "Success", in nearly every errno system
I've seen, btw.

I've seen an error code 0 once in Samba, and I was told it has to do
with the peer "going away". Since the packet doesn't exist or is all
zeroed out in these cases, extraction of the error code field in the
packet results in a "0". This is what gets reported to the end user.

Am I right?
