[Psi-Devel] Weird crash, could be caused by qt signals blocking thread and event being deleted

Here's one that I didn't expect (this was with rev 1100, so it just _might_
have been fixed by some of the more recent check-ins)
I was busy chatting to someone, and they sent me a message, and psi crashed,
the stack was something like:
and near the end of queueEvent, at the "e->type() == PsiEvent::Message"
check, e was pointing to 0x00000001. So my guess is that it could have been
deleted at some point in time.
Now is it possible that the event was queued (~15 lines above it's added to
eventQueue), and some Qt magic caused the thread to be suspended (I'm
thinking either the raiseMainwin - I have raise-on-new-event enabled - or
cpUpdate), and then the event was processed elsewhere causing it to be
deleted - so that when the thread resumed it was invalid.
For the purposes of testing I skipped the rest of the function, and resumed
execution and life continued happily. I think for the life of me what could
have caused this (it's the first time I've ever seen this).
