Huh?  The problem is the same as long as neither connect() nor listen()
have been called, nor a non-blocking connect() has succeeded.  In either
case, the WinSock select() blocks if the SOCKET is given in write_fd,
while the Linux select() returns with the fd set in write_fd.
The difference is just the SO_ERROR value which is 0 as long as neither
connect() nor listen() have been called, resp EINPROGRESS in case of a
not finshed connect().

I'm not talking about a listening socket.  I'm talking about a socket in
neither listening nor connected state.
