I didn't find any errors that could cause the module_fitness to hang. I
have some other comments on your code though:

        //TODO find out if this is essential
        // precalc_new(module_precalc);

If you don't need a function to be called after all restriction
handlers, then you don't need to register one. It's OK not to call

        if(fitness_request_chromo(fitness, "room")) return -1;
        if(fitness_request_chromo(fitness, "time")) return -1;
        if(fitness_request_chromo(fitness, "class")) return -1;
        fitness_request_slist(fitness, "time");

You are requesting more data than you need. This slows down your module.

        sscanf(time->restype->res[b].name, "%d %d", &d, &t);

You could do the same thing a lot faster by calling:


Also, you don't need this loop:

The first for loop already iterates through all events (time->gennum is
equal to tuplenum, number of tuples).

I can't check this right now. It sounds like a bug in the new parser. I
will get back to you,
