Bug Description

Hello, the zmq::mechanism_t::socket_type_string function in ./src/mechanism.cpp appears to have an off-by-one mistake:

const char *zmq::mechanism_t::socket_type_string (int socket_type) const
    static const char *names [] = {"PAIR", "PUB", "SUB", "REQ", "REP",
                                   "DEALER", "ROUTER", "PULL", "PUSH",
                                   "XPUB", "XSUB", "STREAM"};
    zmq_assert (socket_type >= 0 && socket_type <= 10);
    return names [socket_type];

names[11] is "STREAM" but that triggers the assert.

Good catch!

This is fixed in 4.2.0 already, and I will fix it for the next 4.1 stable release (4.1.7).
