Hi again.  GnuTLS 2.8.x is close to being released, and it now does use
poll.  If you have time, I'd appreciate if you could test whether it
solves the problem for you under Windows.  I have tested gnutls-cli in a
cmd.exe windows on Windows XP, and I was able to talk to a SMTP server
without problem, but I can't test from within Emacs easily.
