The reason is that clients, stack or sel might be affected
during the swap and it's a pain to keep track of those pointers
pointing to the correct data. However, the freeze seems to be
related to a side-effect of this swap() thing. My brain is too
fucked up today, I have no sane solution right now. Maybe you
can do it better, lemme know.
