Ok, activestateperl changed sth. "recently", does it's own filehandle
namespace, and exports win32_get_osfhandle, which finally returns the
correct handle (and is aliases to _get_osfhandle in older releases).

I checked in a patch to Glib. Feel free to inflict pain on me if I did
something bad :)

In any case, as the fd space seems not to be the msvcrt fd namespace and I
have no idea how to convert a perl fd to a msvcrt fd (which glib seems to
need), I just call g_io_channel_win32_new_socket on win32 (it doesn't make
much sense to add watchers to other types of fd, I guess, as pipes seem to
be sockets, too, under windows).

This shouldn't break anything (after all, it didn't work before), not
even cygwin, which hopefully doesn't define USE_SOCKETS_AS_HANDLES, but who

(If somebody tells me how to create a ppm I can create one, too).
