I should clarify that the fix also requires changes in the Unix  
support code for it to be effective.  Recompiling the 3.8 Unix code  
base with the modified forceInterruptCheck() will not make any  
difference to socket performance.  An upcoming 3.9 release will  
include the changes, which are already checked in to SVN.
