[zeromq-dev] Reconnect REQ socket with REQ_RELAXED option

It's indeed a bug with REQ_RELAXED. :/

The test2() function in the attached file models Alexey's report. I
don't have time to take care of this right now, unfortunately.

A brief debugging session tells me that when the second send() on the
REQ calls terminate() on the pipe, that pipe doesn't seem to come up
again. This is seen as send() calls returning EAGAIN when they
shouldn't. (sends for connected sockets should never EAGAIN unless we
hit the HWM)

So maybe terminate()ing that pipe is a bad idea? We wanted to terminate
the underlying connection to cause a reconnect. Maybe there's a better
way to do it. See the original discussion here:
