  The problem is that a signal will interrupt any system call in progress.

OK... next silly idea --- keep a generation count in the scoreboard,
and have 'em check to see if they're in the current generation before
accepting new connections.  (They have to resynch the scoreboard anyway,
to see if there are too many spares --- in fact, this condition could
perhaps be handled exactly like the "too many spares" condition is, 
and in the same place).
