I am talking about signals, as reported by the macro WIFSIGNALED. Even
when the process ran by the shell is interrupted by a signal, the shell
itself is not. For instance, if I run the following:

  f = assert(io.popen("lua -i"))

and then kill the process "lua -i", f:close() (as corrected by the
proposed patch) still reports a normal termination through its
second return.
