why does ZK ignore null pointer errors?
I'm trying to track down an issue where my zk cluster rolls over and I've
come across the main run loop in NIOServerCnxnFactory.java.

I keep getting NullPointerError at line 190 which is:

InetAddress ia = sc.socket().getInetAddress()

but it is caught by a catch block at 217 that prints the message:
"Ignoring unexpected runtime exception".

I'm of the school of thought that discourages ingnoring NPE!

Can anyone enlighten me what the reasoning behind this code is?
