In my case, the server should never block as it is handling multiple 
connections, so I am looking for a workaround that will keep communication 
"normal" on the other connected sockets.

If ignoring the error simply makes it trigger again the next time around the 
select loop, the server will certainly become very busy with a few of these 
hanging around, so I was hoping that either the bug "rarely" happens or 
another kind of workaround that minimize the severity of this kind of bug.

I guess this bug would make it hard to create single threaded socket servers 
on Windows (at least using the select call).
