There's a bug in the overlapped I/O code in file.c that means a normal
file fd is added to the select() array and never removed, causing
wineserver to go into a busy loop. I have a hack for it CrossOver,
which I have submitted to wine-patches, which doesn't really fix the
The epoll patch fixs the problem, but not directly. The reason was that
epoll refuses to add a normal file fd to the fd set, where as select was
quite happy doing that.
I'm waiting on Eric Peouch's async I/O rewrite to go in and I'll retest
and see if the above bug still exists.
