tmux crashes on exit

I'm running Slackware 64 13.37.

Whenever I type 'exit' in tmux in order to exit it, tmux freezes and I have to close the terminal to get rid of it (and then kill -9 tmux zombie processes). I tried it on sakura, urxvt, konsole.

my .bashrc is:
. /etc/profile

#if [ -f /etc/bashrc ]; then
#        . /etc/bashrc

export CFLAGS="-march=native -O2 -pipe -fPIC"
export PATH=$PATH:~/bin
export MAKEFLAGS="-j7"

my ~/.tmux.conf

set utf8-default on
unbind-key C-b
set-option -g prefix C-a

unbind %
bind | split-window -h
bind - split-window -v

unbind C-b
set -g prefix C-a
set-window-option -g utf8 on
set -g set-titles on
set -g set-titles-string "#I) #W"
# default statusbar colors
set -g status-fg white
set -g status-bg black
set -g status-attr default
# default window title colors
set-window-option -g window-status-fg white
set-window-option -g window-status-bg black
set-window-option -g window-status-attr dim
# active window title colors
set-window-option -g window-status-current-fg white
set-window-option -g window-status-current-bg default
set-window-option -g window-status-current-attr bright
# command/message line colors
set -g message-fg white
set -g message-bg black
set -g message-attr bright
set -g status-left "#[fg=white,bg=black,bright]#H #[default,fg=white,bg=black]|#[default]"
set -g status-left-length 12
set -g status-right "#[default,fg=white,bg=black]|#[fg=white,bg=black,bright]%a %d.%m %H:%M#[default]"
set -g status-right-length 50
I happily used tmux on previous slackware versions.

Anyone? Can it be something to do with type of terminal?

Sorry. I know this thread is a few weeks old but I'm sure we're not the only ones to have run into this. The tmux from slackbuilds for 13.37 uses libevent2, which is frankly buggy. To get tmux working I went back to libevent 1.4 and it works perfectly.

Just to clarify.I have libevent 1.4 and tmux built in /usr/local. There are other slackbuilds that require libevent2 and wont build against 1.4
