	No, I mean that a socket is created using socket() then, say, ioctl()
is run on it. ioctl() then ,through the wineserver, runs sock_reselect()
then poll() returns POLLHUP in revents and the wineserver stop watching
the socket .. Since most non-blocking applications run socket() then
ioctl() I would think that several applications would be effected..
