I would hack the timeout code to add some printf's before the 
mtx_unlock(&Giant) to dump the function pointer and argument 
if !tmtx_owned(&Giant) and then use gdb to figure out what the callout 
function was.  I.e. something like:

	if (not mpsafe) {
		if (!mtx_owned(&Giant))
			printf("func = %p, arg = %p\n", c_func, c_arg)
		mtx_unlock(&Giant);
	}
