Thanks Martin, I see. Maybe it would be option for future versions? It would make it much easier to write clean test code without aproox. waiting. 
Kind regards, Andi

zmq_close() is async, so only way to make sure that associated resources
are closed is to close the whole context using zmq_term(). That
operation blocks until all the sockets are fully closed.
