	lib/libpthread/pthread_sig.c: revision 1.46
sigtimedwait: if we collect a queued signal via pt_siglist, do not
forget to clear it out of pt_siglist, otherwise we will keep getting
it over and over again.   fixes a problem introduced in rev 1.43.
problem observed with mysqld where sending it a SIGHUP after it has
set an alarm (e.g. due to some package like rt3 using it) caused the
signal handler thread to go into a tight loop (collecting a SIGALRM
[via sigwait() in] that would not go away due to the above
issue).   mysqld appears to get a SIGHUP when /etc/rc exits, so it
can go into this tight loop after a reboot (but not if you restart
it by hand).   the bad sequence is:
        /etc/rc runs:
                - starts mysqld
                - starts web server with rt3 fastcgi starts
                - fastcgi/rt3 talks to mysqld (causing it to set an alarm)
                - /etc/rc exits, SIGHUP goes to mysqld
                - mysqld catches SIGHUP, signal handler thread gets
                        stuck in loop (database continues to operate, slowly).
you can also trigger the problem by sending mysqld a SIGHUP by hand after
you've caused it to set an alarm by connecting to it.
