I don't have access to a Win98 machine but, in Linux, both 
LuaSocket 1.4 and the 1.5-work I just released do sleep when
given empty tables (or even nil) and a positive timeout. 
Can you test this little snippet just to make sure?

    select({}, {}, 1.4);

Let me know and I will try to find a Win98 machine. :o(
