I don't understand "match" part here, but can say something about "error" 
part: while it looks reasonable, it is wrong direction move. What about 
special signals handling? TSTP, HUP, USR1, etc? It should be restricted to 
KILL signal only, since it can't be trapped. Ever ILL should produce some 
warning when process dissappears, since usually dumps core.
