Since it seems to work for other people, maybe it's a usage bug, such as
use-after-free or a corrupted watcher? (compile libev with EV_VERIFY=3 to
maybe catch these).

Does it only happen with the port backend (you can try with LIBEV_FLAGS=1 or
=2 to chose the select or poll backend as comparison)?

Do you have a minimal testcase that crashes?
