This wasn't added because it's not in fact the correct fix but just
a workaround.  There's logic in Bro's signal handling intended to avoid
the reentrancy problem in the first place.  Could you please reproduce
the problem with 0.9a10 and send me (off-list) a full traceback so I can
try to see where that logic is failing?

Probably not any time soon, unless folks want to argue that it would
really be helpful.

It seems it's indeed time to start doing this.  Related to this, I'm making
0.9a10 the basis for a continuing bug-fix-only 0.9 branch.  For development,
we've switched internally to 1.0 (which already has a lot of changes -
stay tuned).
