That really doesn't help (yes, I can see it). That is a bug for the RHEL4
kernel, which is based on a much older kernel and has none of the code
we're discussing here. The test case is a simple program that blocks
SIGTRAP using sigprocmask, then forks and exec's a simple shell script that
just runs some random command; run this under strace. There is no further
information in that bugzilla report that helps us understand the behavior
of that test case in the current kernel, which Luming says has a problem.
