Er, yes, the code that I was reading was the same as the code that I 
compiled and ran. In the mean time, I have configured, compiled and installed
V4.1.2 -- also with the same patch, i.e. the line
"#define HAVE_SIGNALED_IO 1" in the config.h file is commented-out.
Everything is running fine on three different server machines.
When I have a few minutes, I'll try recompiling without the patch.
