Re: [Libevent-users] random crashed by [err] event_queue_remove:not on queue 8

humm.... when I enable the debug mode in libevent, it will dump
GB-level log and not easy to check specific event. Also, the crash
does not always happen in any time running.

Has any quickly fix there?

I try to disable the event_errx() in event_queue_remove() and let
server alive. However, it seems the libevent's behavior become
innormal and is more esaier crash than before.

BTW, I have tested in kernel 2.6.9 and 2.6.32. It seems 2.6.32 more
stable than 2.6.9, but still cause the bug.

Any idea?
