I'm not familiar with `sync/timeout' or `scheme_fd_to_semaphore', but
from `sync/timeout's documentation:

  "A zero value for timeout is equivalent to (lambda () #f). In either
  case, each evt is checked at least once before returning #f or calling

So, I guess it's not a surprise that your call always returns `#f'. It's
not blocking/waiting, how one would want in this situation.
