When I started digging in, I saw the comments in zactor.c indicating that this class is intended to replace the the zthread class for normal use.  Rather than struggle with the deprecated code, I rewrote the sample in terms of the new model, and it works now.

Awesome!  Yes please PR it.

My opinion is to axe the old one.  If someone wants to revive it they
can always make a new PR.  As it was broken anyway, perhaps for some
time, I don't think anyone will notice.
