we have a spurious crash in our program form inside the zeroMQ library with zeroMQ 4.1.3. The backtrace points to code reading from a TCP socket to a ZMQ_STREAM socket:
#0  0x00007fa8341145d7 in raise () from /lib64/libc.so.6

The code basically reads polls on the socket in a Reactor, and then reads all available message parts from the socket with ZMQ_DONTWAIT. Does anybody know this problem? I don't know if we cause the problem, but I tried valgrind to rule out memory corruption problems.
