GetLastOSError merely calls GetLastError on Windows...

came back with the same error. So the API is being called somewhere with
teventobject.create, anyway instead of leaving name blank I put a giud in
for the name and low and behold the error stopped. It appears there is a
limit or a bug on creating unnamed events from a single process. When you
leave name blank the os must be creating a unique name somehow and it has
some issue with a lot of them being created and destroyed. When I compiled
as 64bit it took much longer for the error to happen. After I used the
guid for the event name I stress tested the server with 10s of thousands of
connection and disconnecting and that error never happened again.

Do you destroy the event again once it's no longer used? Of course if you
require the events the whole time it might indeed be a Windows limitation.
