I have spent significant time troubleshooting this issue and found the cause
and solution. I have tested with ARCA Sim Racing and rFactor. Both these
applications use common code and therefore have the same issue. 

The problem is how Wine handles the Winsock2 "Select" function. When a call is
made to Select and you pass read, write, and exception fd_set structures with
all three fd_count values set to 0, Windows will return error code WSAEINVAL
but Wine returns 0 (no error). The rFactor and ASR code is written to handle
the WSAEINVAL return value by re-initializing the fd_set structures and looping
to call select again. Because Wine does not return this error for this
condition the structures do not get re-initialized.

You are probably asking how the structures get changed? rFactor and ASR both
initialize the fd_set structure fd_count value to 1 and provide one socket
handle in the fd_array member for the read and exception parameters. The write
parameter fd_count is set to 0, not used. This is done in the listening thread
initialization code. The Winsock2 "Select" function modifies the fd_count
values by decrementing them to 0. This behavior is true for Windows and Wine.
The difference, and cause of this bug, is Wine does not return WSAEINVAL if you
pass 0 for all fd_count values.

I fixed the problem by "hacking" the NetCommUtilPlugin.dll rFactor and ASR file
to re-initialize the fd_set structures and now it works perfectly under Wine. I
have also passed this on to ISI who will likely not care about supporting Wine.

Here's the rFactor code, see my comments:
