Time to try to get this going again...

What exactly is wrong with poll on OSX? Both the configure test and the runtime test for poll behavior work as designed.  

According to the first message there are other problems with poll on OSX, but without a clear description of what is wrong and how to reproduce this it will be impossible to do anything about it.

As noted in msg83156 Apple removes socket.poll from their builds because poll(3) doesn't work for all types of file descriptors (in particular not for devices), and I don't know if that is a serious enough problem to disable socket.poll in our builds as well.
