You say that no matter what value you put in for the argument that it
always waits for an event? On a Linux box I tested Tony's suggestion about
using 1 vs 0 and it worked. I just tested on latest git from 2 days ago and
I definitely have "polling" behavior when I use 1 but I have "wait forever"
behavior when I use 0. I suspect that the wiki is wrong. (Sadly, this means
that chapter 9, page 224 is also wrong.)

I'll try testing on Windows later today and see what I get. BTW, are you
building FS from scratch or are you using the weekly binaries?
