 Sorry, I've checked the database but didn't find the relevant entries.

 I don't know if I'm allowed to offer a solution here, but I've had a quick
 look at the apache code (ap_bnonblock) and the problem seems rather easy to
 solve. Windows has a function to make a socket handle non-blocking, we're
 using this function in our own (C++) socket library. You have to use a ioctl
 instead of fcntl. Here is some code straight from our socket library that
 shows how to use the functions:
     void SocketHandle::SetBlocking (int fd)
     // Put the given socket file descriptor into blocking mode
 	unsigned long Val = 0;
 	CHECK (ioctlsocket (fd, FIONBIO, &Val) == 0);
     void SocketHandle::SetNonBlocking (int fd)
     // Put the given socket file descriptor into non-blocking mode
 	unsigned long Val = 1;
 	CHECK (ioctlsocket (fd, FIONBIO, &Val) == 0);
 So, adding something like
     #elif defined(WIN32)
 	unsigned long val = 1;
 	return ioctlsocket (fd, FIONBIO, &val);
 to ap_bnonblock in buff.c should solve the problem. Unfortunately I don't have
 the necessary tools to compile apache for windows, so I cannot test the
 changes myself. However I can offer to test the changes if someone is able to
 compile the sources.
