Description of problem:
RH 8.0, Kernel 2.4.14-14 (same with 2.4.18.-19.8.0)

In our application we encounter unexpected SIGIO signals.
This neither happened on RH 7.3 nor on SuSE 8.1.

The application enables SIGIO for stdin to get async
notification of keyboard input. However with RH8 SIGIO
seems to happen unrelated to stdin.

Shortened strace is below:

rt_sigaction(SIGIO, {0x8074c90, [], SA_RESTORER|SA_RESTART, 0x42028c48}, NULL,
8) = 0
fcntl64(0, F_GETFL)                     = 0x8002 (flags O_RDWR|O_LARGEFILE)
--- SIGIO (I/O possible) ---
select(1024, [0], NULL, NULL, {0, 0})   = 0 (Timeout)
sigreturn()                             = ? (mask now [])
write(1, "\33[24;1H\r", 8)              = 8
--- SIGIO (I/O possible) ---
select(1024, [0], NULL, NULL, {0, 0})   = 0 (Timeout)
sigreturn()                             = ? (mask now [])
write(1, "\33[?25h", 6)                 = 6
--- SIGIO (I/O possible) ---
select(1024, [0], NULL, NULL, {0, 0})   = 0 (Timeout)
sigreturn()                             = ? (mask now [])

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run application

Actual Results:  SIGIO signals related to fd 1 (and fd 0 as well)

Expected Results:  SIGIO signals related to fd 0

Seems that the same happens still with 2.4.18-26.8.0.

SIGIO seems to work as supposed when application is run from console.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
