I've uploaded a test release of readline-7.0.1-2 which disables pselect
support. I would appreciate if you could test that it fixes things for
you without using the official release cygwin1.dll (although you have
already tested that the recent test build of cygwin also fixes things).

Once we have another cygwin release, I'll build readline-7.0.1-3 which
re-enables pselect.
