I think it is a race:

_after_ the process has been suspended by the primitive the async queue
is ran which will put back the semaphoreOOP into the myList.

(gdb) bt
#0  0xb76d2901 in remove_process_from_list (address@hidden)
    at interp.c:1399
#1  0xb76d29dc in add_last_link (semaphoreOOP=0x4043f6c0,

#8  0xb76e6c00 in _gst_nvmsg_send (address@hidden, 
    address@hidden, address@hidden, 
    address@hidden) at interp.c:2317

So is it possible that the suspended process is also the get_active_process
at that time? And then it gets re-inserted into the waiting list?
