OK. I've tested with the RC2 netinst CD which had exim4 version 4.34-7.

The difference is that exim used to only reload the config files on a 
-reconfigure, while now it does a restart.

So, in the old situation the exim4 deamon started on system boot would 
keep running, but now the old daemon is stopped and a new daemon is 
started which indeed seems to inherit the SigIgnore settings from 

I tried adding a line with 'trap "" INT' to the script
/usr/lib/base-config/menu/mta but that did not help; apparently that does 
not "untrap" the other signals.
