Good! Although, you should have kept the parenthesis if you want the
combined output of those first three signals to go to /dev/null, currently
it doesn't do that (it writes a \n in /dev/null :)
BTW /debian2/web/update.mirrors file is owned by UID 1167, which doesn't
exist, better chown that to yourself or some working account, I don't think
the suid will work with that.
