What about Kushal's suggestion above? Does the following work for you?

signal.signal(signal.SIGTERM, my_SIGTERM_handler)
signal.siginterrupt(signal.SIGTERM, flag=False)

According to the siginterrupt docs (
http://docs.python.org/library/signal.html)
"""
Change system call restart behaviour: if flag is False, system calls will
be restarted when interrupted by signal signalnum, otherwise system calls
will be interrupted. Returns nothing. Availability: Unix
'"""

Cheers,
Oscar.
