Actually it gets stuck in net_Read(), and more precisely inside the
call to poll().

Since net_Read() calls poll() with no timeout, I'm not sure it is a
bug. But I have a really poor understanding of that stuff.

Is it possible to blame the server? In that case, would it be possible
to have a timeout mechanism, like a net_Read flavour which calls
poll() with a timeout? (and the associated stream_Read variant?)

If it is a bug in the polling / socket stuff, I can try to fix it, but
it will take time...

Thanks for your help,
