[zeromq-dev] Disable message batching

0MQ does not batch when there's nothing to batch. The only situation 
when batching happens is when network is not fast enough to transport 
messages. In such case messages are queued and sent later on in batches 
to improve throughput.

This looks like a bug. What exactly are you doing?
