blocking select masks out X events

I have installed b20.1 and am using it together with gcc 2.95.2, and
gdb 4.17.1. I am currently porting a Motif application, and (as I can
not use LessTif due to its lack of uil support), I am using the X and
Motif libraries of Hummingbird's Exceed XDK. I have run across a
problem and was wondering if anybody out there would know some help:

A blocking select (struct timeval *ptr = NULL) on stdin seems to mask
out Hummingbird X events when I run a generated executable from the
command line. As far as I know, the Hummingbird libraries were compiled
with b19.1. The problem disappears when I run my code under gdb.

Any ideas ?
