I seem to remember that one can define gdb commands that are executed whenever the program stops.
It this were true, we could activate such a definition in a ".gdbinit" file and then run the program. When the Python stops due to a signal, the command would be activated. It would make a backtrace followed by a quit. Not sure, it will work, though...
