I started thinking about my own client code and read up on the socket class.
The docs say the socket object is unsafe for shared objects. So I put locks
around every async_read or async_write operation. However, it still fails.

Is the problem with my code the fact that 2 threads are using the same
socket? Is that just not possible?
