When we talk about signals, we must always be careful of threads. Python unit tests are known (at least by me ;-)) to "leak" threads. IMO the first step to make the test more reliable is to start it in a fresh process to control exactly the number of threads.

A fresh process avoids also to inherit an expected signal and/or signal handler.

I modified test_eintr recently to do something similar.
