Does READ-CHAR-NO-HANG work properly on socket streams?
There is a comment in HANDLE-LISTEN (in win32.lisp)

    ;; FIXME-SOCKETS: Try again here with WSAEventSelect in case
    ;; HANDLE is a socket.

which makes it sound like that isn't implemented yet.

I suspect that WAIT-FOR-EVENT/EVENT-LOOP (in swank.lisp) blocks even
though the timeout argument is t.  To see if that's actually the case,
you could generate some debug output in WAIT-FOR-EVENT/EVENT-LOOP.  It's
the easiest if you use LOG-EVENT for that.
