Oh... I must say that I had the same problem with one of the
older SuSE (7.3) releases. It apparently has nothing to do
with the trapping of the SIGCHLD signal. What I did is to
set breakpoints on all signal-related calls and then launch
the nsd executable under debugger. Now, there are no places
in the code which mingle with SIGCHLD signal whatsoever.
I ran the vanilla AS distro, which means no extra modules
apart from AS standard ones (nssock, nsperm, nslog).
By running the server from /bin/csh the signal problem went
away. It does not happen in your setup. Hm... So, there is
something else wrong there... I will have to see wether I
can find something. It has definitely something to do
with the Linux OS.
To make it even more interesting, even the plain tclsh
executable on that system seems to have the same problem:

  mickey:/tmp # tclsh
  % exec ls
