I had this issue when converting the ftp-wildcard example to my libcurl node.js bindings, which uses the multi interface internally for every request.

I got the following "standalone" (libuv is still required) application to reproduce the issue (it's mostly the multi-uv example with small modifications):

To run it: example.exe*

Line of code that is causing the access violation:

libuv version was the master one at

Had this issue on Windows, I could not test on Unix but the issue is probably there too.

I just ran the code under debian 8 and had the same issue:

Your test program works fine for me after this fix. Thanks a lot for your clear and accurate report!
