I think I've found the problem.  I was mishandling signals that arrived during a 
read.  But after I fix that, there's still one nagging issue involving timerfd 
code.  I'll write to the main list with details.  I *think* it's a timerfd bug, 
but it's puzzling that I only see it when testing my new pipe implementation.
