well the API's doc of ServerSocket states this:

 public synchronized void setSoTimeout(int timeout) throws SocketException

Enable/disable SO_TIMEOUT with the specified timeout, in milliseconds. With 
this option set to a non-zero timeout, a call to accept() for this 
ServerSocket will block for only this amount of time."

Plus jthreadedAccept as a timeout passed as an argument. It works perfectly 
in the unix-jthreads version.

Do you mean that I should write a function that waits for the timeout instead 
of having the select() code directly in the jthreadedAccept function?
