> I wonder if we just need to make a matrix of which OS versions and which syscalls can handle PTYs correctly, and either put it in the docs or perhaps even refuse to accept PTYs in add_reader/add_writer...

Right now, I think that we don't have enough data to decide on which OS and OS versions such error should be raised. But I agree that it would be nice to raise an error instead of hang, crash, or just behave badly.

Until that, here is a patch to skip the test on FreeBSD < 8.0.

The test hangs on FreeBSD 7.2, test_asyncio pass on FreeBSD 9. The FreeBSD 8 buildbot is offline. test_asyncio is skipped on FreeBSD 6.4.
