Yup.  This is not new in 7.1, it's been like that since Tcl 8.0 came
out.

In their infinite(?) wisdom, the Tcl boys removed all cross-platform
support for waiting for socket input in Tcl 8.0.  Presently libpgtcl
depends on Tcl_CreateFileHandler which is a Unix-only API.  Feel free
to contribute code to implement a Windows-compatible solution (maybe
even a Mac-compatible-too solution, like we used to have pre-Tcl-8).
Or rattle the cage over in Tcl land till they get some sense knocked
back into them.  Or something.  But right now it's busted.
