Sorry to respond to myself, but I may have just gotten confused by the
documentation on linger.

The zmq-setsockopt documentation says the default linger value is -1,
meaning an infinite linger period.

The czmq zsys documentation says the default linger value is 0
(zsys_set_linger), meaning any pending messages will be dropped.

I suppose the two statements are not necessarily in conflict, since one
applies to ZMQ and the other to CZMQ.

Anyway, I first read the zmq-setsockopt documentation, thought it was
already using an infinite linger period, and concluded it wasn't an
option.  However, I've actually found that setting ZSYS_LINGER=-1 solves
my problem.

But perhaps the documentation could be clarified on this point?
