Hm. No, it seems the code I'd been using was not using poll() after all.
This is bad, ver bad: after looking at the Interix manpage for poll, it's
obvious that the damn thing should never have been put into libc. (It
apparently doesn't support *any* normal files.)
I'll mull over this. It may require some really u-g-l-y hackery. To say
the least, I'm not happy about it....
