[Eeglablist] Merging two datasets *after* appending eventlists

Hello Grusha, one thing to try is to NOT append the event lists until after
you've merged the datasets successfully, which should not be tough.
I would also not fully depend on urevent, but consider having your own
structure in matlab which contains all your necessary event information.
And yes, urevents is probably not being used later in your analysis

Also, check the way that you are adding in events is kosher, as it might be
causing this issue. See the addnewevents function which seems to work
great, if you haven't had a chance to.

If you think this is a bug, and can replicate it easily, please submit it
to the eeglab bugzilla.
