Yep, it was me. I was using the versions of those elements from the
registry instead of my build.

However, I think your change has a ref counting bug in gstbasesrc.c
gst_base_src_send_event() calls gst_pad_push_event() with the event,
but then additionally falls through to the gst_event_unref() at the
end of the function, resulting in a ref count one too low. I'm new to
gstreamer, but it looks to me like you need to either call
gst_event_ref() before gst_pad_push_event(), or avoid the unref call.
