There is a low level data structure called sigaction. Without diving into the Perl guts, I really don't know what Perl does to this structure. But apparently it does something different than just not writing to it at all - I presume whatever Perl does is an attempt at multi-platform operation that on your particular platform does something that you didn't expect.
