Using Gtk2::Helper->add_watch on win32


So my perl/gtk app (
runs perfectly on Linux, Mac OSX, and FreeBSD, but on Windows
(Camelbox Perl and compiling it all from source) it doesn't work since
using Gtk2::Helper->add_watch on a network socket file descriptor
seems to have no effect.

I've searched around and the only conclusion I have found is that
pipes on Windows suck.

Is there a better answer or is the only way of making my app run on
windows to either convert it to use threads instead of the helper's
watch functions or rewrite it in another language?

Thanks for any info whatsoever,
Joe Gillotti
