Well, I've asked several folks around here, read several manpages on the 
subject, and still can't find the info that I need, so...

Select() can test for 3 conditions: ready for reads, ready for writes, 
and the one that's got me stuck, ``exceptional conditions''.  Can someone 
define the latter for me?  Specifically, I'm wondering if the 
closing of a file descriptor during the selection process generates such 
a condition.
