I'll try take this into account when submitting the patches.  I do 
recall there were a couple of cases (like the pipe functionality) 
where select() will fail is the OS/2 Dos*Pipe API's were used - hence 
the switch to the Unix code - only in the case of klibc being used.

I'm moving house in 10 days - once we're settled in I'll make an 
effort to clean things up and submit the revised patches.
