	When runnig a long running multicast receiver which constantly 
	gets data this one stops after about 90 mins. When looking
	with netstat -nia one finds out that membership of the multicast
	group is lost.
	Run a program that sets multicast parameters, gets input in an
	endless loop via recvfrom() and feed it with data.
