Did you try using 2.6.7pre3?  This new release makes sure that all
required signals are unmasked, and this fixes an failure-to-exit bug
where a SIGUSR2 signal could get lost if a parent process had set an
overly restrictive signal mask (SIGUSR2 is used in the exit events of
the receiving side's pair of processes).
