Well, I don't know much about ref counting, which is why I was going
to try and avoid it.  But this is the only solution I can think of which
should work.  Well, except for forcing receive() to do hard switching
instead of soft switching.

I think I will wait for Christian's opinion on this before I apply
the patch given the limited case in which the problem occurs.
