Yes, I think that would be somewhat cleaner.  I'm not sure how many
calls as well as wait() have to be protected in that manner; I guess
it's in the manual.

Ironically, in a previous version of the code I *wanted* to get EINTR
back when children exited, but I didn't because the Linux default for
handlers established using signal() is to restart.
