Description of Problem:
Insufficient NULL checking is performed for arguments to threadpool_jobs_dec -
in case 'ar = state->ares;' executed and state->ares == NULL, this pointer will
cause a crash when dereferenced.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
Not known, seems to 'randomly' happen with a *Async sockets application having
~9000-10000 open connections at a time.

Actual Results:
SIGSEGV being raised.

Expected Results:
Either the NULL pointer being ignored, or a managed exception being raised.

How often does this happen? 
Seemingly at random.
