[ minimal test program snipped ]

Didn't look at the program too closely, but I ran it on vanilla 2.2.16,
and reproduced the problem. I'm not sure F_SETSIG and friends
are supposed to work properly on 2.2.x, though; isn't 2.4.x when
they're supposed to be fully functional?
(cf. )

It's wierd - for some reason, if the client is on the
same machine as the server, the server's behavior really
differs based on whether the client is root or not.
