The above doesnt look unreasonable for the most part, assuming a line
before what is shown is calling receiveLink.current(). It does look
like you dont apply any accepted/rejected/etc disposition to the
deliveries before settling, which may or may not cause issue for the
peer.

I'm not clear on what you mean exactly by a 'blocked reciever'
however. Is it not recieving messages you think it should? Not sending
disposition for messages you think it should? Not flowing new credit?

>From looking at the code, the delivery "isReadable()" returns true
when it the Dellivery was for a receiver link, and is the 'current'
delivery for that link, meaning that you can call receiver.rcv(..) to
grab its related content. A Delivery might not be readable if e.g the
receiver has already been advanced to the next delivery and it is no
longer the 'current' delivery, or perhaps the delivery event
corresponded to a disposition change sent by the peer after the
delviery content had been previously read and the link advanced.
