seems that the select() does not work properly on my system.
Sometimes it times out even when the elapsed time of the command is less than
the specified timeout. maybe a timer resolution issue on my platform ....
when I specify for instance a timeout of 300 ms, somm commands that used 250 ms
are ok, but others with 30 ms are not ...
When I set the timeout to 500 ms or more, I have a good chance to get entropy 
(although I cannot be sure :-( ). Guess I have to find a fix for the select()
