Is it still a problem with pselect, where rebuilding with the same
configuration as 7.0.1-2 fixes things? I'm really not sure how to even
go about debugging this one, and it's not my highest priority at the
moment (I've got coreutils 8.27 to build for cygwin, and autoconf 2.70
to release upstream).  So any help is welcome.
