If the priority queue of scheduled events is empty, the dispatch loop should terminate successfully. This bug might be related to the fact that event_have_events returns true even if there are no events. 

Reproduce code:



// called when user hits ^C
function stop($sig) {
    global $s;
    echo "You got signal $sig. Descheduling event.\n";

$s = event_handle_signal(2, 'stop');


echo "Going into dispatch loop: at t= " . time() . "\n";

echo "all done\n";


Expected result:
all done

program exits.

Actual result:
program remains stuck in the dispatch loop. "all done" is never reached.

Thank you for taking the time to report a problem with PHP.

If you are able to reproduce the bug with one of the latest
