But nowhere else, it would seem, at least not when python is built
threaded.  Darwin fails in a similar manner to FreeBSD, test_signal
hangs on Solaris, but only if it's runs as part of the test suite --
it runs fine if you just run it alone.  Argh!  I really am starting to
think that I should back out my patch and distribute my code as an
extension module.  Opinions?
