> Using {{TNonblockingServer}}, when the number of IO threads is > 1, there is race
condition in which {{stop()}} does not properly unblock {{serve()}}. 
> The problem manifests itself when {{stop()}} is called (obviously from a different thread)
soon after {{serve()}}. 
> The core issue is that, {{event_base_loopbreak()}} is called within the {{stop()}} sequence
without checking whether the IO thread has actually entered its event loop. The documentation
of {{event_base_loopbreak()}} says (http://www.wangafu.net/~nickm/libevent-book/Ref3_eventloop.html)
> {quote}
> Note also that event_base_loopexit(base,NULL) and event_base_loopbreak(base) act differently
when no event loop is running: loopexit schedules the next instance of the event loop to stop
right after the next round of callbacks are run (as if it had been invoked with EVLOOP_ONCE)
whereas loopbreak only stops a currently running loop, and has no effect if the event loop
isn’t running.

> Attached is a patch (against the released 0.9.3 version of the codebase).
