Description djm 2005-05-12 16:51:32 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm trying to catch SIGFPE when generated by an integer divide by 0 exception.
The first is caught and handled by my handler sucessfully.  The second
is handled by the kernel and never passed to my handler.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've tried this on FC2, FC3, and FC4T3 (all X86_64).  It works fine on RH73.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. g++ -o t t.c
2. ./t
Actual results:
SIGFPE caught 1 of 2
Floating exception

Expected results: (from RH73)
SIGFPE caught 1 of 2
SIGFPE caught 2 of 2

The program should use sigsetjmp and siglongjmp.
Using plain longjmp to leave a signal handler leaves signals blocked.
