Yuck.  This is definitely a bug, but not an easy one to fix.  It has
to do with how we try to avoid race conditions when deleting and
freeing events.  I've had some ideas, but the solution is going to be
nontrivial, though, and probably have some API effect for some
multithreaded programs.  I'll post again once my thoughts on this are
clearer and I am buried under less work.

In the meantime, the poster has has posted information about a
workaround at http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3154040&group_id=50884&atid=461322
that might be helpful to people.
