Maybe my Thunderbird is impotent, but this list gets swamped pretty

And yet again, I forgot why it was deprecated (I think there was signal 
structs being different across platforms, though I'm not sure where the 
problem was), but anyway Rich suggested sigaction.
This reminds me, the code is distinctly C99, and it tests SUSv4 
functions, so if you don't mind, for cluts, I'll use those two standards 
and go back to SA_NODEFER. If I decide to pay more attention to that 
distributed computer project of yours in the future (I thought there 
would be some smart CS people applying for that one), then the situation 
will probably be different ;-)
Oh, and I do believe I know aht "clobbered" means (overwriting the new 
value of the variable with the old one, from when the context was saved, 
right?). That's what I've said I've checked with buf.c. I'll check it 
for other relevant collections now too... Will push new minor fixes in a 
few minutes.

P.S. Perhaps I should start thinking about how the final cluts.c will 
look like, otherwise it might become hard to change all the test 
collections later...
