SubjectRe: select() bug
In the code sample, there is a loop that is run four times.  During
each iteration, a call to select() and write() is done, while every
other iteration does a read(). Between the 1st and 2nd calls to
write(), as well as the 3rd and 4th, select() fails, but all write()'s
and read()'s succeed. There is no code bug.
