Anyway, if handlers do not get invoked it usually means that
io_service::run() loop either doesn't run or is eternally blocked by
some other completion handler. The former case can occur, for example,
if io_service runs out work, i.e. run() just exits (note that is you
call io_service::run() when there's no async.operation in progress and
it has no associated io_serivce::work, the io_service runs out of work
The both cases are relatively easy to debug.
