event_set() resets which base the event belongs to. The extension does not register that and libevent will segfault.

Reproduce code:
  $ev = event_new();
  event_set($ev, udp_getSocket(), EV_READ, function() { });
  $base = event_base_new();  
  event_base_set($ev, $base);
  event_set($ev, udp_getSocket(), EV_READ | EV_WRITE, function() { });

Actual result:
Segmentation fault in event_add().

It gets worse: When I got notified I there was data in my (own) write-buffer I tried:
  event_set(..., EV_READ | EV_WRITE | EV_PERSIST, ...);
  event_base_set($ev, $base);

but that segfaults somewhere in event_add() too. (I guess in the handlers add()-function, but I can't confirm that for sure with gdb)

Calling event_set() after using some event seems to be not-done.

This bug has been fixed in SVN.

In case this was a documentation problem, the fix will show up at the
end of next Sunday (CET) on

In case this was a website problem, the change will show
up on the website in short time.
Thank you for the report, and for helping us make PECL better.
