Well, I expanded killall5.c with a couple printf's:

int main(int argc, char **argv)
        signal(SIGTERM, SIG_IGN);
        signal(SIGSTOP, SIG_IGN);
        signal(SIGKILL, SIG_IGN);

        /* Now stop all processes. */
// changes rw
        printf("now doing kill(-1, SIGSTOP);\n");
        kill(-1, SIGSTOP);
        sent_sigstop = 1;
        printf("done with kill(-1, SIGSTOP);\n");

 and the last thing I see on the console is the first printf.

So to me it seems like "signal(SIGSTOP, SIG_IGN);" either isn't 
 honored, and killall5 itself killed, or else it kills something else
 essential, but what could that be?

Plus, I've discovered 3 other boxen, various DL360/380, with the same 
 problem. Isn't there anyone else with Compaq/HP gear and this problem?
