This kind of thing won't fly (write_to_browser calls lws_write())

                 write_to_browser(wsi, p, strlen(p), false);
                 if (pclient->saved_window_contents != NULL) {
                   int rcount = pclient->preserved_sent_count;
                   char *buf = 
                           URGENT_START_STRING "\033]103;%d,%s\007" 
                   int rlen = strlen(buf+LWS_PRE);
                   write_to_browser(wsi, buf+LWS_PRE, rlen, false);

if it's common more than one case will want to write, I suggest you 
concatenate them into the tx buffer and then write once at the end if 
anything wrote in the tx buffer.  Otherwise you can only send one and 
ask for another writable callback if you detect something more to do.
