My working assumption is that the problem is a bug with the dynamic
prioritization. The task receiving the signals calls sleep() after
handling a signal and hence it's dynamic priority should end up higher
than the priority of the task sending signals (since the sender never
relinquishes the CPU voluntarily).

However, I haven't actually had time to look at the relevant code, so
I may be missing something. If you understand the issue better,
please explain to me why this isn't a dynamic priority issue.
