Well, all I can see from the discussion so far my impression is that you
somehow have found a solution, but you have no idea why it does not work
with the current code nor why exactly this patch fixes it, and I suspect
it may be due to incorrect error-handling in the code which will still
not work - which in turn might mean there is a race condition and in
maybe one in a million cases it will still crash.
