Because SIGKILL can't be trapped and even not do any special action like 
SIGILL (core), disappeared process == killed. But it is not so for other 
(trapped or special action) signals. Disappears should not be silently 
ignored as SIGKILL due to special action missing, warning is enough in 
that case.
