This was just a quick try, to better understand the behavior.  Not a
proposed solution.  Excuse me for not being precise.

Exactly, this was what I meant in the part you elided:

I just had some time to investigate it further.  The WSAGetLastError
gets overridden in the call to pfn_ioctlsocket.  That's why errno is 0.

If I swap the order of the if statements in sys_write to look as
follows, then the reason for the SOCKET_ERROR is revealed:

      if (nchars == SOCKET_ERROR)
          DebPrint (("sys_write.send failed with error %d on socket %ld\n",
                     pfn_WSAGetLastError (), SOCK_HANDLE (fd)));
          set_errno ();

      /* Set the socket back to non-blocking if it was before,
         for other operations that support it.  */
      if (fd_info[fd].flags & FILE_NDELAY)
          printf ("reset file_ndelay");
          nblock = 1;
          pfn_ioctlsocket (SOCK_HANDLE (fd), FIONBIO, &nblock);

=> WSAENOTCONN (10057): Socket is not connected.  So that's the prove it
accesses the socket too early.

Alas, even though it seems to help at least for the test code I tried,
turning WSAENOTCONN into EAGAIN seems wrong after all.  It shouldn't try
to write to the socket before it is connected at all...(?)  Also the
code "wraps" pfn_send and turns it into a blocking call.  Not sure what
the implications are...

Nevertheless, don't you think the error handling in this code section is
not very elaborate and switching the order as shown above might be
better anyway?  sys_write is primarily about writing, not about
switching from non-blocking to blocking and back again...  Or shall it
somehow aggregate possible errors of both calls (pfn_send and
