What is the purpose of this behavior?
I can't imagine such an application where I want to either transmit or 
receive something if *both* ends aren't running.

I have to do several workarounds in my code to get all the stuff to work.

Of course, if the zmq's guys decided to do this there is good reason. 
But I can't see which one.
