Subject: Core bug: -fork vs. timer.


With OS_TIMER=1, forked processes' save timer does not work. Childrens' session files are not saved until (hopefully) at exit. Moving sig_init() to after john_fork() fixes it, but I'm not sure of other consequences.

Tested with core tree on Linux and OSX. I found it in bleeding becuase similar problems exist with --progress-every and --max-run-time.
