Can you think of any condition that would cause this to happen?

Yes, I do not think the function pointers are being deleted. I do
occaisionally delete C++ objects from Lua, using special wrapper functions
(via toLua). I don't think that would cause a problem unless toLua
seperately tried to free the data again...

Any other ideas?
