Well, I'm not mixing threads and signals, really. I've now learnt
that when a signal is directed at a process on BSD it is delivered to
"a" signal from the set of signals that hasn't blocked it.
What I need to know, and can't quite work out, is how many threads are
present when you just execute
and are sitting at the interpreter prompt? Is it just the one (the
main thread)? That's what I thought, but I'm unable to explain the
behaviour I'm seeing if that is indeed the case.
 Modem speeds being what they are, large .avi files were
generally downloaded to the shell server instead.
 Where they were usually found by the technical staff, and
burned to CD. -- Carlfish, asr
