    Are you sure? IOW, are you seeing a leak of the count? The sigqueue
    structure has a lifetime the same as the timer, IIRC. So each time the
    signal is sent/received there's no accounting, because it's reused.
    But timer create/delete does sigqueue_alloc -> __sigqueue_alloc which
    does the inc. and sigqueue_free -> __sigqueue_free which does the dec.
    I'm fairly sure I had tested this.
