    That is certainly what came first to mind. (Note that it's not strictly
    SIG_IGN alone, but sigaction_says_ignore.) We'll have to contemplate a lot
    of corners to be sure we get it right. It's not real clear to me how you
    go about finding all the affected timers sanely from sigaction.


    Thanks,
    Roland
