Okay, I understand now, thanks to you and Michael Sweet.

Note that I can successfully SIGKILL on Linux, which is expected. I
suspect this kernel bug in OS X will be fixed eventually.

However, I think I'm going to commit the latest patch. It seems like
it is an improvement for some people, and at least not harmful for
everyone else.

Done in r15909.
