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 
problem properly:


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.
