Looks like that this is not cross-platform. With Windows XP, the OP's code does return -1.

A note that could be related: on Windows, select() is implemented as part of Windows Socket 2. Most likely, select() only works with socket on Windows.

    select only works on sockets in Win32. Update: I guess you said that already. I apparently didn't read your entire post. Well, take it as confirmation, then.
