dbpoll() is used when you send a query asynchronously (sp?) to the
server (ie you send the query, but you don't want to wait for results
to come back). You the call dbpoll() at regular intervals to see if
there are any results pending so that you can process them. dbpoll(-1) 
is *supposed* to wait an indefinite amount of time before it returns
if there are no results pending, dbpoll(1000) will wait for 1 second
(1000 millisecons) before it returns if there are no results pending.
