(module-1:wheel)# dtrace -n 'database$pid:::' -c ./db invalid probe specifier database$pid:::: failed to grab process 28055
User defined signal 1: 30

dtrace(1) sends itself SIGUSR1 (30) from one thread to another if it hits an error.  It would seem that in certain cases it sends that signal when there is no handler installed for it.
