So I guess the real question there is: WTF is perl doing setting the handling to SIG_IGN? Even if you grant the proposition that perl knows what it's doing in terms of its internal behavior, which given the above seems doubtful, it has no business overriding a host application's signal settings like that. regards, tom lane -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
