It means you caught a SIGHUP, a hangup signal. Other things generate
hangups as well. The application usually exits fine with those. 

On a different note, for others who read this message, why do SIGTERM
and SIGKILL work nicely, but a SIGQUIT, which sounds nice and all, dump
core most of the time?
