They are not necessarily reader threads. They may be stuck in zmq_send() 
for example (if HWM was reached). They can be insuide zmq_poll() at the 
moment. They can even do no 0MQ operation at the time zmq_term() is 
called -- ETERM will then be returned on the next call to any 0MQ function.

In short, calling the "reader" threads is a bit misleading.
