I finally took a closer look at your code.   I think your socketCheck()
thread is draining socket and causing the normal threads to miss
events.

Use the FIONREAD ioctl() instead to get unread bytes instead of recv().
If you want to recv() without draining the socket, you can also use
the MSG_PEEK flag.
