[New-bugs-announce] [issue12224] problem with siginterrupt

New submission from Zhiping Deng <kofreestyler at gmail.com>:

If socket timeout > 0, then there is no way to automatically
restart some socket calls like recv(). 
Calling siginterrupt(False) is useless, because python calls
internal_select() if socket has timeout, and select returns
error(EINTR) once interrupted by a signal, regardless of the

So a user may have to wrap every socket calls in this case.
