That means that the return value of the socket() call is stored somewhere
(in sock_fd). What ist sock_fd -- an object variable, a local variable or
a global variable? If it is an global variable, I assume the the object
was not constructed. Perhaps, sock_fd is part of a static object?

Please post a little bit more, at least the definition of sock_fd or even
the whole file.
