After doing some doing some searching around, I believe that it is
nss_ldap that is causing the problem. I found some references to a bug in
signal handling that affected nss_ldap versions <200 and 213-219. We are
running 217 (the current version for FC2). Before we upgraded, we were
running version 202 therefore didn't see the problem.

I am building a test system so that I can verify that the newer nss_ldap
library fixes the problem. If it does, I'll file a bug report with the
fedora project so they can update the distribution.
