 There is no guarantee in POSIX that the main thread receives a
 signal sent to the process if multiple threads (including the
 main thread) have the signal unblocked.  The only way to
 guarantee signal delivery to a specific thread is to send it
 directly to the desired thread, have all threads other than the
 desired thread mask the signal, or be blocked in sigwait{info}()
 from the desired thread at the time of signal delivery.  You
 are relying on behavior that is not specified by the standard.
