What's the other end sending?
I suspect most implementations of mq_receive() layer it on top of
msgrcv(), which can return E2BIG (== EMSGSIZE) if the message to be
received is larger than the receiving buffer --- a condition which I
note mq_receive() does not document (unless mq_msgsize means a given
queue only supports fixed size messages, which seems odd).
