The problem is the SIGCHLD handler being set to SIG_IGN, which is
different from the signal mask.

I'd like Peter to file a github issue because he knows the version
that he is using.

However in general terms a trivial plugin which just does:

  #include <guestfs.h>
  guestfs_h *g;
  if ((g = guestfs_create ()) == NULL || guestfs_launch (g) == -1)
    exit (1);

should be sufficient to demonstrate the problem.  (Work around it by
adding ‘signal (SIGCHLD, SIG_DFL);’ to the plugin code.)
