Change the apr client you mean to handle receiving APR_POLLIN, right?

Yes, select() is being used (added some logging to select.c that 
actually shows up). We're running on Windows XP (SP3) which, as I 
understand it, doesn't have WSAPoll().
If XP does have WSAPoll(), how to enforce it? Is it determined buildtime 
or runtime which poll/pollset provider is going to be used?
Can and should we use another provider than select on XP and how can 
that be configured? Or, for this use case, shouldn't we use XP 
altogether and use one of those server versions of Windows instead?
