That's strange. I can't reproduce this neither. I always get exactly
one call to myEventAddHandleFunc:

myEventAddHandleFunc:221: Add handle 3 1 0x7ff116f68b00 0x1d97f00
myEventAddTimeoutFunc:251: Adding Timeout -1 0x7ff116f68750 0x1d97f00
main:322 :: Registering domain event cbs
myEventUpdateHandleFunc:232: Updated Handle 0 0
myEventUpdateHandleFunc:232: Updated Handle 0 1

You could try to run the event-test in GDB and set a breakpoint on
myEventAddHandleFunc to see where 4 additional calls to
myEventAddHandleFunc come from.

In my case I get this backtrace when setting a breakpoint on
myEventAddHandleFunc:

(gdb) bt
#0  myEventAddHandleFunc (fd=6, event=1, cb=0x7f1be6ec3b00
<remoteDomainEventFired>, opaque=0xc68f00, ff=0) at event-test.c:220
