Problems handling simultaneous events.

EjsS 5.2 seems to have difficulty handling simultaneous events. - August 10, 2016 at 1:50

I created separate events for collisions of particles with the left and right walls.

The events are handled properly when the events are non simultaneous, but when a right wall and left wall collision happen simultaneously, only the right wall even is handled.

These are both Positive Crossing events, and I have tried both Secant and Bisection methods.

Is there a elegant fix to this problem?
