OK, so I took this approach:

ulimit -c unlimited      # so that core files are produced
while ( true ) do ./myprog; done

Then when it died and core dumped, I did:

gdb perl corefile

then it complains about not having symbols for a lot of things, but
it did tells me it was in a signalhandler.  (I didn't copy the exact text).

So now I'm trying to figure out what (from a Perl point of view), what
process is receiving what trap.
