No, peek_socket() does not change write_selected. It sets write_read if 
write_selected is set.

If only read status is requested via select()/poll(), write_selected is 
always false and the connect_pending=>connected transition is never done.

After a nonblocking connect(), postfix calls poll() with pollfd.events = 
POLLIN only. If poll() succeeds, it calls recv(). This fails with 
ENOTCONN because the state is still connect_pending.
