        Really I don't know that this is always an error.  It means that a
signal has been sent - possibly by the mud itself - to the process running
the mud.

Situations where you'd receive a sighup:
        You disconnect and your terminal attempts to close all processes
        You or the admin sent this signal to your process
Situations where you'd receive a sigint:
        You hit control-C under the procesess controlling the mud, or have
                a specific sort of crash...I think...
        You or the admin sent the signal to your process.
Situations where you'd receive a sigterm:
        You or your admin sent the signal to your process in a deliberate
attempt to terminate it.

        This isn't all the situations but that's a short list of the most
frequent I hear about.

                Bleh.  Count, and hit return after it?
