So the WIFSIGNALED thing has to do with perl.  Here is some about the
perl I have installed on my system.


$ dpkg --status perl
Package: perl
Status: install ok installed
Priority: important
Section: devel
Maintainer: Darren Stalder <torin@daft.com>
Source: perl
Version: 5.003-2
Pre-Depends: libc5, libgdbm1, libdb1
Recommends: libc5-dev
Description: Larry Wall's Practical Extracting and Report Language.
 An interpreted scripting language, known among some as "Unix's
 Swiss Army Chainsaw".
 Perl is optimized for scanning arbitrary text files and system 
 administration. It has built-in extended regular expression matching
 and replacement, a dataflow mechanism to improve security with
 setuid scripts and is extendible via modules that can interface
 to C libraries.

$ ls -l /bin/perl
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root           15 Jul  3 11:29 /bin/perl -> ../usr/bin/perl
$ /usr/bin/perl -v
