That is disconcerting.

That could be because of the strict mode we're in with EDG eccp.
In this mode, many standard UNIX interfaces (such as signal names)
are not exposed through our strict headers (i.e., <signal.h>). So
it's possible that no signal is being sent...

Let me see if I can reproduce and debug it.
