Hi Pieter

No offence meant. I appreciate your work and being a developer myself can full-heartedly understand that 'Hey that free stuff isn't working'-mails are not welcome. 

I was trying not to complain, but to suggest to the improve the documentation. It is sometimes not clear what is widely tested and used and what's new or for limited purposes. And others may encounter the same problems.

Independent from that, I'll debug into the ZMQ sources to see what's going on. But you know what bosses are like: Once I've found a working workaround, he's not too happy to see me hanging around a 'solved' problem.
I'll try nevertheless.

A minimal test case, unfortunately, is hardly feasible. I'm moving in a million lines of closed-source code with proprietary classes for about everything. It's worth a try though.

It took us _some_ time to make ZeroMQ.

ZeroMQ is built by its users, it is free software, and if you use features in particular ways, and they crash, the proper response is to help us improve them, not complain. Please make a minimal test case that reproduces the crash.
