(The program handles SIGTERM so that it can do a bit of cleanup before exiting, and it uses the signal-handler-sets-a-flag technique. The call that might be interrupted is sleep(), so the program doesn't strictly _rely_ on the existing behaviour; it would just become very slow to exit.)
Making an exception for sleep() (i.e. still letting it throw EINTR) sounds like a reasonable idea to me.
