It's not clear that this has anything to do with select at all.
Rather it sounds like what you are seeing is a DNS lookup (perhaps
the recvfrom in res_send) being interrupted by a signal.
However, that shouldn't happen unless the signal handler has been
installed w/o syscall restarting enabled.
Given the paucity of information you've provided there is very
little we can do to help you besides try to guess at the nature of
your problem. If you had a system call trace like the author
suggests we would have a lot more to go on.
