Sort of. One thing that's confusing is there are two pselect() calls in
the function:

          if ((pselect (max (max_process_desc, max_input_desc) + 1,
                        &Atemp,
#ifdef NON_BLOCKING_CONNECT
                        (num_pending_connects > 0 ? &Ctemp : NULL),
#else
                        NULL,
#endif
                        NULL, &timeout, NULL)
               <= 0))

and

#if defined (HAVE_NS)
          nfds = ns_select
#elif defined (HAVE_GLIB)
          nfds = xg_select
#else
          nfds = pselect
#endif
            (max (max_process_desc, max_input_desc) + 1,
             &Available,
             (check_write ? &Writeok : 0),
             NULL, &timeout, NULL);

Why the two? Could there be a case where one is triggering handling so
that the second never gets evaluated?

Am I right in thinking all incoming X messages (such as those associated
with cut/paste) will come in via the X terminals gobble_input?
