It's pretty easy to corrupt libev's internal memory structures. Make sure
you don't corrupt any watchers that are active (by reusing the memory or
freeing it for example).

If you can'T find the problem, you cna try running with a libev compiled
with -DEV_VERIFY=2 or 3, which makes libev check it's data structures
increasingly often, in the hope of getting a clue.
