I've been trying to come up with a minimal test case now for a couple of
days, and I just cannot seem to make it crash the same way.. Whether
that means the bug is really in my code or that it is only triggered by
a very specific situation, I don't know. The fact that the code runs
perfectly using other queueing libraries suggests the latter, but I
can't be certain.

Unfortunately, I can't devote much more time to chasing this bug this
time around, so I might have to seek out other solutions. I'll report
back if I happen to find the culprit when I get some spare time to look
back into this.

Thanks for the help anyway!
