So you have data to read, but select tells that you don't.

Hm. This is a simple server, using non-block sockets, select and readline.

It reads one line every 1/10th second ensuring the client will have finished and closed its end of the socket long before the server has read the first buffer load:

And here a simple client that connects, writes 1 full 4k buffer load, then 2k and a distinct last line.

If the select was returning eof before the buffer was emptied, you wouldn't see the distinct last line; but I always do!:

Perhaps you can tell me what I'm doing 'wrong' to make it work? Or maybe the behaviour you describe is just a *nix thing.
