Not in current (well not the same bug) the callout code is a rather
differnt version now!

Of course, if TCP (or anyone else for that matter) is forgetting
to stop a callout before freeing the data area all bets are off...

Since all the callout table lists are (IIRC) double linked through
a null item, it ought to be possible to verify the back pointers
whenever anything is removed from a list.
