In some places in the code, an assumption is made that the value of errno is unchanged between two references to it. In some cases, this is incorrect: strerror(errno) is referenced in two successive lines, one logging an error, the other throwing a CSessionInitError message. LOG_ERROR may do file-related activity: as a result, errno could change between the two calls. It is suggested that the error string be retrieved before the LOG_ERROR call, and that error string be passed to the logging and the isc_throw macros. if a call to sigaction() fails, an exception is raised. However, prior to errno being accessed to provide the text for the exception, SignalSet::erase() is called. At present this method does not appear to do anything that would alter errno, but this might not be true in the future. It is suggested that the error string be retrieved before the erase() call.
