It would be nice to have in a SIGINFO handler as well, but
since your application is dump run by Amanda as a background
process, a SIGINFO is not very useful, unless it was being
suggested that the setproctitle() be called from a SIGINFO

I'm pretty sure that this would not be a valid thing to do;
SIGINFO itself is also problematic, since if you redirect
output to a file, etc., you'd really need to call fflush()
in the signal handler, which is not supposed to be done, as
it is not one of the permitted calls.

Also, printf() allocates memory for floating point, so if
that percentage is a floating point calculation, then you
are in double trouble, since you are not allowed to call
malloc() in a signal handler.
