[zeromq-dev] python3 2 threads and PAIR sockets, when to close?

hello

I have:

def thread1():
  s = context.socket(zmq.PAIR)
  s.bind('inproc://name')
  s.send_pyobj( dictionary )
  ### That's all I need to do , can I close s here?
  while True:
       # stay alive forever

def thread2():
   s = context.socket(zmq.PAIR)
   s.connect('inproc://name')
   dx = s.recv_pyobj()
   while True:
       # stay alive forever

def main():
  Thread(....thread1..).start()
   time.sleep(5) #5secs
  Thread(....thread2..).start()
  #wait for signals


thread1 is the parent one, proceeds independently.
thread2 can only proceed once it got the dictionary from thread1

1. do I need the sleep(5) in the main thread to ensure thread1 bind happens
before thread2 connect?
2. can I close s in thread1 as soon as I send the dictionary?

Thanks,
