I notice that if you use "malloc" from within a signal handler on
FreeBSD-6.x, that you can potentially trigger a "recursive call" error.
But this seems to have changed in FreeBSD-7.x.
Is it now permissible to call "malloc" from within a signal handler in
If so, should the man page of "sigaction(2)" be upgraded to say this?
