I think that is a separate issue (from the description). Thinking about 
it some more the issue with the blocking helloworld is that there is a 
receiver link established for the message, but that link has no credit 
yet (because the credit is issued when calling receive()). In this case 
the router seems to not issue a disposition - it doesn't release because 
there is a link interested in the message; it can't accept because it 
hasn't received an accept from the receiver since it hasn't got credit 
to send to that receiver.

Now that I've spelled it out for myself, this is certainly not a big 
issue at all as the example is not something you would ever really do. 
Annoying that it doesn't work, but I think perhaps better handled by 
rethinking the example.

+1 on 0.4 from me.
