#705 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Log more helpful status when process exits under the boss

Jeremy reported something exited with status 139.

It turns out that the status value is as follows:

a 16-bit number, whose low byte is the signal number that killed the process, and whose high byte is the exit status (if the signal number is zero); the high bit of the low byte is set if a core file was produced

That is from the Python documentation here:

So, deciphering it we see that it is < 256, which means it is a signal. The high bit is set - meaning we have core. We can remove that by subtracting 128 and discover that this is signal 11 (SEGV).

It would be nice if the boss process did this work and reported exactly what happened to the child process.
