If you're using zhelpers.h instead of CZMQ, then none of the CZMQ
threads apply to your case.

zhelpers installs a simple signal handler. Your application is also
installing a signal handler. There's going to be some confusion then.

I'd suggest making your version of zhelpers.h without the signal handling.
