No, the signal handler is elsewhere in the Xorg server. Reports include
that Mesa could be the source for that. It is very strange what they do
in the signal handlers :-( Xrender might be another source, no idea.
sorry to mis quote.. when you say X server, does this mean it's driver 
specific? (was using radeon in my case)

I don't think I was using mesa on my machine unless there is some kind
of nested dependancy I'm unaware of (via GTK,  xscreensaver initializes 
it on startup, etc)

anyhow.. my bug report (#875) seems to have inspired Matt so perhaps 
we'll have a fix soon, as much as I which I could have been the hero :)
