Supercollider / TCP

Supercollider – when receiving messages in TCP – asks for a trailing int containing the length of the message [1]. This has been implemented like this:

QByteArray out = oscMessage( path, data );
qint32 len=out.length();
out.push_front(QOscBase::fromInt32(len));
socket()->write(out);

Sending such a message to puredata, results in an error:

unpackOSC: DataAfterAlignedString: Incorrectly padded string
unpackOSC: Bad message name string: Dropping entire message.
