The main cause (actually the only one I know) for corrupted messages
is when you send from a buffer (using zmq_msg_init_data) and then free
or reuse the buffer. Since data isn't copied, if the original buffer
isn't valid when the message actually gets sent (at some later point
by the I/O thread), it'll send garbage.
