select on windows is very limited. It is only allowed to be called
with socket handles. You cannot use C RTL fd with it or another sort
of handle.

Because its part of winsock and not part of the C RTL so it cannot mess
with errno itself.

> HAVE_SELECT is the first thing tested in floatsleep().

HAVE_SELECT should probably be undefined on windows. With the expection
that the sockets module for windows can use it.
