Those seem to be problems that are common to the systems that use
polling instead of SIGIO.  I think you can rather concentrate on Feval
removal for now, leaving those problems to others.  In particular, if
you are planning to call read_socket_hook at the QUIT timings, you
should never start menu bar tracking there.
