Yes, you can add it into signal_handler(), but the only thing that it will
report to you is the line number of where you inserted it. (ie:
it will point you to the line inside the signal_handler() routine).
Generally, its easier to run the mud under some sort of debuger and
set a break point inside the signal_handler. You can then examine the
call stack frame and see where you have your infinite loop at.
