Hi Pieter,

Yes, it is easily reproducible in following steps.

1) Sever creates "ZMQ_REP" socket and bind it to  "tcp://*:5555" and blocks
on zmq_recv.
2) Client creates "ZMQ_REQ" socket and connect it to "tcp://localhost:5555".
3) Client send "hello" message and waits for Sever response.
4) Sever receive "hello" message, Server reply with two messages
(multi-part messages). First message "Fine" and send_more to true. Second
message "ZERO length message" and send_more to false.
5) Client receives first "FINE" message on first zmq_recv and failed with
zmq errno 156384763 on second zmq_recv.

Why zmq_send not able to send "zero length message" ?

Thank you,

Hi Rakesh,

Can you reproduce this with a minimal test case?
