Oh, that's what you meant. So the effort suddenly went from "high" to "trivial". This is just a flag that is 0 on process start and becomes 1 on the installation of a signal handler. And nothing else. Honestly, as hacks go, I've seen way worse. The ugly thing is the bug we're working around. Might be worth a comment, though. Ciao, Markus
