Another scenario is when you start an async call followed by a sync call 
without returing to the eventloop inbetween.

I solved this in the Qt3 backport of the bindings by offering a method to 
schedule (QTimer based) a call to the dispatch loop and added an appropriate 
warning to the async call's API docs.

Since this doesn't help in your case I guess I should rather trigger the 
scheduling always before returning from a sync call.
