I haven't really looked at mq stuff before either.

Jakub wrote this test, so maybe he can explain some of its intents.

That's correct.  And that's what POSIX says it should do (under mq_notify):

      If a process has registered for notification of message arrival
      at a message queue and some thread is blocked in mq_receive() or
      mq_timedreceive() waiting to receive a message when a message
      arrives at the queue, the arriving message shall satisfy the
      appropriate mq_receive() or mq_timedreceive(), respectively. The
      resulting behavior is as if the message queue remains empty, and
      no notification shall be sent.
