What I saw was select returning -1, and SOCKERRNO returning 0,
so the code looped forever.

But ultimately what I was wondering was whether there was a reason
not to pass in a timeout to make sure the code always popped out of the
loop. There may be a conflict in the same arg timeout_ms being passed to
select to indicate no blocking, and the timeout used in the function itself
where 0 means never timeout..

Anyway it's not a major problem.

Eoin.
