[zeromq-dev] czmq/zbeacon - broadcast address doesn't match selected interface

I'm using zbeacon for service discovery, and have been noticing that the beacon doesn't always behave as expected. I'm using the zsys_set_interface() call to specify which interface to broadcast over, but according to netstat, the beacon is broadcasting over This seems to cause the beacon to be routed differently on each machine.

Is broadcasting over expected behavior? I've got a patch that alters the behavior to what I expect. I'm not sure if I should submit it as a pull request or not though.

Thanks in advance,
