I forgot to mention my patch is 3.3-only, sorry - it depends on changes from #12555 ( to be precise). To support 3.2 and 2.7:
 (1) select.error must be caught as in the original patch,
 (2) e.args[0] must be used - select.error doesn't have 'errno' attribute.
Should I prepare the patch for 3.2 and 2.7?

Regarding not updating the timeout, it was already mentioned above. Though as an afterthought, it might be worrying that if the process is receiving repeated signals with interval between them less than timeout, we might fall into infinite loop of select() when it should timeout, but that is probably very obscure case.
