Windows sockets: WSAWaitForMultipleEvents returning WSA_WAIT_EVENT_0, on an FD_READ event, with no data available to read.

Hi,
I'm writing a simple client - server communication application.  My question here is in regards to the server side.

After the client establishes a connection, it then writes 8 bytes.

The following (server side) code section successfully receives the 8 bytes.  The problem is that future calls to WSAWaitForMultipleEvents seem to all return signalled, even though there is no data to read.  To illustrate, I put a for-next loop around the same WSAWaitForMultipleEvents...recv sequence.  The first iteration through the code successfully reads the 8 bytes, but on the 2nd iteration through, the WSAWaitForMultipleEvents call still returns signalled, even though the FD_READ event should have been cleared by the recv call.  See the output below.
Any thoughts on what the problem is would be greatly appreciated.  This is the only worker thread in the application.  

            int iError=WSAEventSelect(m_Sockets[ClientIndex], m_Events[ClientIndex], FD_READ);
            if (iError) Message6(RED,"WSAEventSelect Failed"); else Message6(GREEN,"WSAEventSelect Successful");

            DWORD dwResult;
            for (int k=1; k<4; k++)
            {
                  Message6(BLACK,"Iteration #%d",k);
                  dwResult = WSAWaitForMultipleEvents(1,&m_Events[ClientIndex],FALSE,500,FALSE);
                  if (dwResult==WSA_WAIT_EVENT_0)
                  {      Message6(BLACK,"First WSAWaitForMultipleEvents returning WSA_WAIT_EVENT_0 (signalled).  mask=%x",FD_READ);

                        int iResult = recv(m_Sockets[ClientIndex], (char*)(&dData), 8, 0);
                        if (iResult == SOCKET_ERROR)
                        {
                              int iErr=WSAGetLastError();
                              if (iErr==WSAEWOULDBLOCK)
                                    Message6(BLACK,"WSAEWOULDBLOCK on receive.");
                              else
                                    DisplayWinSockErrorMessage("recv error: ",iErr);
                        }
                        else
                        {
                              Message6(GREEN,"Just received %d bytes of data. %f",iResult,dData);
                        }
                  }

            }
