Oh, I'm not saying "don't check it."  I'm saying that I'm really annoyed
at Sun for making yet another stupid implementation decision and Linux is
looking more and more attractive, that's all.  This one isn't as bad as
gratuitously returning EAGAIN from sockets that have selected as ready to
read, but it's another operating system bug of the same type.
