I agree that this is a very serious problem. Setting non-blocking
mode is a radical change to expected semantics, so that if that mode
is not available, it cannot be right just to leave it off.
I think the real error is in setting non-blocking mode: that cannot be
the right solution to whatever problem it meant to solve. I don't know
what problem it was meant to solve. I do know that we have had iostream
implementations for more than a decade that perform well on both files
and ttys and do not depend on setting a non-blocking mode.
