Please (if not already done):
1. Remove both instances of
self->num = fd;
in ei_connect.c so it is possible to use process id for transaction
id to avoid the 6 + 1 = 4 scenario presented at EUC.
Anyone wishing to preserve the old behavior can still set the value
in their own code before calling ei, although I haven't thought of
a reason to do so.
2. Also fix the select statement in ei_connect.c.
A patch against R9C-0 showing both suggestions is here
