[zeromq-dev] finding the right message pattern

thanks for your input so far. I went a head and created a minimal
working example which unfortunately suffers from balancing issues.
Here's the URL to the gist https://gist.github.com/3706633 . I tried
to keep it simple:

The router simply waits for a welcome message from the workers and
replies with a "START" command which initiates the sending of random
data at the worker process.

The router process counts the amount of messages it receives from each
client. As already stated, it seems as if some client messages are
received more frequently. After a few seconds this is returned by the
counter dictionary: {'5906': 1, '3801': 147313, '4712': 24986},
meaning that the router received over 24986 messages from worker with
id 4721.

Am I doing something wrong? Note that each worker is running in its
own process. Do you have any idea?
