You're sending five bytes, 'Hello', which is not a valid C string as
required by the printf function.  Either send six bytes (string plus 0
byte) or else convert the received message data to a valid string.

I've wondered if 0MQ should not automatically and always append a null
byte to received messages (not included in stated message size) so
that strings can be safely passed between C/C++ and other languages.
