This error is reproducible by simply passing '-j' to regrtest on any Windows build so it is not Win64-specific.

It seems that when run in a subprocess, certain signals have C handlers that cause the return value of getsignal() to return None which, of course, is not a valid handler for signal().

The C-level handlers seem to be coming from faulthandler so I am unsure if it is wise to replace those signal handlers within the test.  Attached is a patch which only resets signal handlers for those without a C-level handler.
