perlport says:

=item select

Only implemented on sockets. (Win32, VMS)

which may explain why we haven't seen any Win32 smokes since Friday.  
On VMS, eintr.t hangs on the very first read(), which never gets 
interrupted by the alarm.  I have some ideas about why that might be, 
but there's no easy fix so I'll probably have to put in a skip.  If it 
were possible to implement the test in terms of a socket rather than a 
pipe, it might be more portable.
