Back in the day we had some confusion about how
InterruptedIOException was supposed to work.  I think in the end we
discovered that it really didn't work reliably cross-platform, so we
could remove the various hacks we had added to try to make it do
something sensible.  There's some stuff in the archives about this.

If you dig it up, this would be a useful addition to the Classpath VM
integration guide.
