OK, I figured out what the issue is - glyph changed the selec.tselect() 
so that it doesn't get a timeout, so it basically freezes until it gets 
a connection (unless you have a Delayed). Apparently on Windows the 
select() system call an't be interrupted.

Add a Delayed with a timeout of 0.01 so the select loop doesn't freeze?

Real Solution:
Win32 API event loop. Patches accepted.
