That shouldn't matter.  Event selecting is properly stopped first.
Then the event object isn't used anymore, anyway.  And then the
socket is switched back to blocking.  Looks pretty normal.  I'm
under the impression that the quotation from MSDN in my previous
posting has something to do with the hangs.
