No worries, me too.  Thanks to your report I was curious where the
EINPROGRESS was coming from.  I found that it already happens in connect
and after some thought I finally implemented a much simpler technique for
an interuptible blocking connect than before.  Actually the former
implementation looks embarrasingly complex in contrast to the new one.
The positive side effect of the new technique is now that your application
never gets errno set accidentally.
