A bug reported to digium stated that when cel_pgsql.so was reloaded in quick succession, asterisk would crash. Upon trying to replicate this bug in multiple ways, I was unable to but believe that the crash was due to a race condition in the module_unload code which caused certain memory to be free'd twice. The reason for this was because the pointers were checked in a conditional statement before being free'd, to make sure they weren't NULL, but weren't being set to NULL after they were being free'd. Therefore, if reload was called too quickly a race condition might result causing memory to be free'd twice.
