Actually, I think I do now. I had seen someone complain about this error 
before, but my inspection to the code turned out that the situation was close 
to impossible.

This provided an insight:

That function creates a socket with asynchronous connection and kills it off 
after 2 seconds. I don't know where the fault is, but I guess some signals 
are being emitted and then received by the deleted object. That could explain 
the error above.
