        Sure, still works though. :)  I had this problem when I was trying
to get a decent output from gdb when the mud tried to do signal trapping.
Stevens "Unix programming" says to use SIG_QUIT - its usage is to cause a
correct core dump, when you want to bail and examine the core.

                        Go for it :)
                Er, whoops, looks like you already fixed everything.
