It's edge-trigerred, meaning that ZMQ_FD becomes signaled only once when 
any number of messages is received. You can read all the messages but 
ZMQ_FD won't get signaled again until you fail to get another message 
(either ZMQ_EVENTS returning !ZMQ_POLLIN or recv() returning EAGAIN). At 
that point the whole thing starts from the beginning.
