Yes, the error paths in handleSendFailed should be looked at. If NewDirectByteBuffer or recvmsg fails then addressP needs to be freed. Furthermore, if the NewObject fails and bufferObj != NULL then the memory for the direct buffer will need to be freed too (as JNI NewDirectByteBuffer does not setup a cleaner).
