I was pretty clear in my initial email that I'm only interested in changing 
behavior for Linux programs. And I was asking for help with that, not a link to 
SUSv3 or POSIX. 

On closer reading of the man pages it looks like linux's clone is supposed to 
change the disposition for the exit signal. I'll have to write a test program 
to reproduce this behavior in isolation.
