Sure, but... what would you do instead?
You could try to report some kind of error. But without evidence of
this being a very common issue I would not bother, at most I would put
an assertion in there... crashing anyway.
By ASIO handling this, returning a real error, it would be passing the
problem the the users of ASIO which now need to handle it. IMHO the
issue in that C library (NSS plugin?) simply needs to be fixed.
