Yes, this is the answer.  Network.Socket.socket calls
System.Posix.Internals.setNonBlockingFD to set socket non-blocking.
I'm on Windows, and this function is simply "return ()" for this
So that's why it doesn't work on Windows, I think I should find some
way to make a socket unblocking after its creation.

Thank you.
