The SSL case with the chitchat to set up the connection is a bit
different than the simple case where as soon as you read you have
everything needed, so it does seem moderately interesting that the
read|peek makes the simple SSL testcase work.

Also in the FWLIW department:

a. once we get to the process_connection hook, APR's limited knowledge
of the socket state (timeout, non-blocking) is the same on Linux and

(That was expected all along.)

I had hoped to query state directly from the OS socket too, but
apparently the Microsoft folks don't think you need to be able to do
that, and I don't see any external sysinternals|other tools to tell
you anything interesting about the socket other than the normal
netstat stuff.

b. Using WSAEnumNetworkEvents to clear any existing events didn't seem to help

        /* start new */
        rv = WSAEnumNetworkEvents(context->accept_socket, 0, &lpNetworkEvents);
        if (rv == SOCKET_ERROR) {
            ap_log_error(APLOG_MARK, APLOG_WARNING, 0, ap_server_conf,
                         "failed to clear network events on connected socket");
        /* end new */
        apr_os_sock_make(&context->sock, &sockinfo, context->ptrans);

c. switching out the WSAEvent stuff for a straight
select(is-listener-readable) doesn't work around the problem either
