During testing I found that forks does not run the END block if e.g., an INT signal is processed. The signal handler is called normally (in fact the INT handler of all threads gets called, something that is not mentioned in the documentation), but the END block does /not/ get called while it should be! I have attached a sample program that illustrates this. Just send the INT signal (e.g., press ^C) while the program is running and look at the missing execution of the END block when forks is used instead of threads. Kind regards, Hayo Baan
