We take the events_list_lock down below so we're safe against missing an
event, but past events currently unread in the queue will be lost.

Shortening the size of the queue is inherently a destructive process if
we have more events in the current queue than can fit in the new queue.
Because we a liable to lose some events in such a case, I think it's
best to keep the behavior of this reallocation consistent and have it
provide a fresh empty queue every time, as opposed to sometimes dropping
events and sometimes not.

I also suspect an actual user would be setting the size of their queue
to the required amount before they begin watching events, rather than
adjusting it sporadically during a live operation.
