	Quite. But is this the case here? If it is, then it is indeed
 *also* an eterm bug, and I should even advocate raising the
 priority. I suspect, however, that eterm does not really gratuitously
 go around ignoring sigals like that.

	Wihch brings me to my original point: unless eterm is doing
 what you said above, it is not an eterm bug.

 Aberdeen was so small that when the family with the car went on
 vacation, the gas station and drive-in theatre had to close.
