Jesse The problem is this line: > 8238 rt_sigprocmask(SIG_SETMASK, ~[HUP INT QUIT ILL TRAP ABRT BUS FPE SEGV TERM STKFLT CHLD PROF SYS RTMIN RT_1], <unfinished ...> Something broken in the Go runtime is bypassing libc and either calling SYS_rt_sigprocmask itself, or calling the libc sigprocmask function with a sigset_t it produced itself, blocking a libc-internal signal. This makes it invalid to make any further use of libc. Either it (the Go runtime) needs to manipulate sigset_t objects via the public APIs for them (sigfillset, sigaddset, etc.) or its wrapper for sigprocmask needs to convert the Go-manipulated sigset_t to one valid for libc by iterating over the bits and using sigaddset, so that invalid bits don't end up in the one passed to libc.
