No, Pavel saw the problem with rc8 too, which already has that fix.

So I think we'll just need to revert that original patch (and that
means that we have to revert the commit you point to as well, since
that ->next_tick field was added by the original commit).

Pavel, can you verify that rc8 with both


reverted works reliably for you?
