Interesting, though it looks to me like the segv in ticket 2352 would
have happened on the send side instead of the receive side like you
have. As to what to do next it would be really nice to have some sort
of reproducer that we can try and debug what is really going on. The
only other thing to do without a reproducer is to inspect the code on
the send side to figure out what might make it generate at 0 hdr->tag.
Or maybe instrument the send side to stop when it is about ready to send
a 0 hdr->tag and see if we can see how the code got there.

I might have some cycles to look at this Monday.
