    events: save the event handle, and then enable the event
    Fixes the race:
      - helper thread creates event
      - helper thread enables event
      - main thread runs event, tries to use event handle
      - helper thread saves event handle
    for instance, in the code sequence:
      pexpect(ne->ne_event != NULL);
      passert(ne->ne_event != NULL);
    the pexpect() could fail because the handle hand't been saved
    yet the passert() would pass.
    Root cause of d457dede06f6e22e927590d1059e303cbe02cd82's core dump.
