This is being generated by this chunk of code from
* Masking above should prevent us ever trying
* to take action on an ignored signal other
* than SIGCONT, unless process is traced.
if ((prop & SA_CONT) == 0 &&
(p->p_flag & P_TRACED) == 0)
break; /* == ignore */
So you have a process being traced that is getting ignored signals. I
suspect the message is a leftover debugging prinf and should be harmless.
You can file a PR to get this removed if you like.
