These are *bit flags*, so 3 is INPUT_READ & INPUT_WRITE.
I'm not sure what the correct course of action is to take here;
I tried calling both doRead and doWrite, but that only resulted in

Also relevant in the description of the GDK.INPUT_READ flag:
] the file descriptor has become available for reading. (Or, as is
] standard in Unix, a socket or pipe was closed at the other end; this
] is the case if a subsequent read on the file descriptor returns a
] count of zero.)
