That's interesting and good to know. I cannot find it anywhere in the
documentation for signal_set (
). My understanding has always been that this issue does not occur
using asio, since it will post() to the executor when a signal is
received, so the possibly unsafe code is not executed in the signal
handler the kernel sees.

Have I misunderstood this?
