[zeromq-dev] zmq_server can be remotely crashed with telnet

Hello,

FYI, there is some instability in the latest version of zmq_server
(from trunk). If you telnet to the box running zmq_server (on the
appropriate port) and then press ctrl+c, zmq_server dies with the
following message:

zmq_server: zmq_server.cpp:296: int __unixcall main(int, char **):
Assertion `false' failed.

Seems kind of dangerous since people sometimes use telnet to quickly
see if a service is accessible.

Regards,
Aamir
