sigchld vs. os.popen, os.command, etc.

Ok, I know this is more of a general unix question, but when I set a handler
for sigchld, it causes any library function which makes a child and wants to
wiat() on it throw an IOError because my handler has already wait()ed.  Is
there any better solution than simply wrapping all such calls in try: ...
except IOError: pass ?
