SIGPIPE is unreliable -- Solaris 2.5 doesn't even generate one when
writing to a closed socket.  We really should be ignoring it everywhere
and just using the return code to detect an error.  That was the case
for the core code last I checked.  mod_php should be checking the return
code for an error.
