Having just followed yr thread, I realised that this means the REQ 
socket  type must add the null delimiter for you, and sure enough the 
code is there to do that.
It generates an empty prefix.

It's a bit awkward that you have to remember to do it manually with XREQ 
and presumably set the more flag as well.
