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

Pipes or sockets?  You mention both. says:

"In general, don't directly access the system in code meant to be
portable. That means, no system, exec, fork, pipe, `` , qx//, open
with a |, nor any of the other things that makes being a perl hacker
worth being."

Do you have an example of code that demonstrates your problem?

Can you use a lower level construct like IO::Select or even the
select() call to watch your sockets (I'm assuming this is what you
meant above) instead of Gtk2::Helper?
