1.1.4, select, and SIGCHLD

I am seeing behavior where a daemon process has multiple children die
'simultaneously' and subsequent calls to select() consistently return
immediately with errno set to EINTR.  This puts the daemon into a tight
spinloop and it becomes useless.  If the child deaths are sequential,
daemon behaves properly.

I've seen this behavior on cygwin 1.1.4 and 1.1.5-2.  Has anyone else
this behavior and is there a fix for it?
