I worked on a bug about a year ago that turned out to be AIX intermittently
returning early from a poll() for readability on a socket, then returning
EAGAIN on the following read(). See APAR IZ81307 for the gory details.  The
input filters had a blocking option set, but we implement it with a poll()
followed by a non-blocking read().  It caused empty buckets to get passed
up the input filter chain which caused other odd symptoms.
