in thread SIGHUP delivered on Windows

could it be that an exception occuring within this signal handler (or a second signal arriving by that time) could be translated somehow into a SIGHUP?

I cannot see how that could happen.

Firstly, for you to get to the line where you do kill SIGHUP, $$, your process would have to have already received a SIGHUP; because you're just rethrowing it. But I am unaware of anything that would ever send you a SIGHUP.

There is the vague possibility that another Perl process could be sending your process a SIGHUP; but as far as I'm aware, any attempt to do so would simply get translated into a SIGTERM.

    I agree with your reasoning. That's what I thought too.

    So for the time being, this has to remain a mystery. Thanks for taking the time to analyze my code.

      If you were running Cygwin Perl all your fav unix signals would work. But you claim to run ActivePerl so IDK what to say further.

        How true ..... :-(
