This turned out to be because the fd and timeout fields are only 
initialized when timeout is configured and the non-blocking behaviour 
was triggered because of it. Otherwise the code simply doesn't 
anticipate EAGAIN could be returned and the behaviour is more or less 
undefined; it ends up calling poll() with fd = -1 and a garbage timeout.

More precisely, what I actually want is a (ret > 0) case that is used 
unless both USE_NON_BLOCKING_TLS is true and a timeout is configured.

If we added to ber_sockbuf_ctrl() the ability to query whether the 
socket is non-blocking, for GnuTLS at least we could bypass poll() and 
go straight back into ldap_int_tls_connect(). However I don't see a lot 
of benefit to this as long as calling poll() on a blocking socket has no
