Just wondering, does this also effect select/poll on sockets in either 1.7
or 1.5? I seem to remember a Windows event loop required for select on
sockets and wasn't sure if this change would be related.
A long time ago (1.5.18) I discovered a delay in select on sockets and
wondered if this might have been related. I haven't retested in that long
since I found a work-around ;-).
