I see the same problem with the RI's jdb tool on Windows x86 in M1 and 
M2. In windbg I see the stack trace points to the SelectRead() function 
in JDWP. As you say, it is likely this is caused by a blocking socket 
call being unable to be interruped.

I don't see this problem recreate when debugging with Eclipse or with 
Harmony's jdb tool. I suspect this may be because they send a message 
(maybe VM_DEATH) to the server side to tell it they are exiting, and 
this causes JDWP to shutdown and exit rather than waiting for further

I think this was the last issue that I felt might block the java 6 
milestone. The other failures I see are not regressions.
