No. I explained this elsewhere, but that is not the point of the  
functions in javanio.c. The cpnio functions are meant to guarantee  
POSIX semantics, including the goofy errors you might get when using  
them; they only try to introduce an as-light-as-possible layer of  
insulation between the native code and blocking syscalls.
