The poll code has seen very little maintenance or testing lately, simply
because there are better alternatives on all the platforms we officially
support.  Theo Schlossnagle has an acceptor implementation that uses
Solaris event ports; you may have more luck with that than with poll.

In any case, thank you for the patch; I will commit it as soon as
