Description (last modified by fdupont)

in signal_set.{h,cc}:

    /// Prior to invoking the handler, it sets signal action for the
    /// given signal to SIG_IGN which prevents any repeat signal
    /// occurrences from queuing while the handler is executing.  Upon
    /// completion of the handler, the signal action is restored which
    /// re-enables receipt and handling of the signal.

This should not be applied to SIGCHLD as ignoring it has a special meaning we don't want.

Note we can postpone the fix of this bug if we can assume there is only at most one child process... (true in the current code).

As discussed on 2018-01-11 call, this is likely a bug, but the proposed fix didn't solve the customer's problem. Also, this is not an issue that bothers any specific deployments right now, but we'd like to improve the code one day. As such, moving to outstanding.
