AF_LTE socket and nrfxlib

After many hours of successful LTE connections and using the AF_LTE socket just fine (many creates, many send/receive, many closes), my application now hangs on a call to socket(AF_LTE,0,NPROTO_AT). Hung, as in the call to socket() does not return. I have no idea where to look to resolve this. Is the nrfxlib code available for review? I'll sign an NDA if I can get my eyes on it. I've spent way too much time trying to code around strange behavior in nrfxlib/nrf/zephyr.

This is running on nrf9160 DK, modem fw v1.1.1 and NCS v1.2.0
