INT handling makes Thin test suite fail #520

The following Thin spec runs just fine with RSpec 1.x, however fails with RSpec 2.x

rspec -l 99 spec/daemonizing_spec.rb

The difference is that RSpec 2.x are handling now the INT signal (e521013). Originally, when the forked application received the INT signal, it exited, however, now RSpec handles the signal and they are waiting for second occurrence to quit. Although I have opened this issues at daemons issue tracker [1] (the underlying library used by Thin for daemon support), I am afraid that this might impact other libraries and RSpec should be unobtrusive.

Interesting dilemma. rspec-core captures SIGINT in order to support proper cleanup (i.e. running after hooks, etc) and reporting when you hit CTRL-C. I'd be open to making this configurable so suites like Thin's can turn it off or assign the behavior to a different signal, but I'd want to the default to be as it is.

If just single Ctrl+C would be enough, then there would not be any issue IMO. Not sure what is the purpose of it ...

@justinko I saw it, I referenced it in my initial comment.

Ping? This is still an issue.

@voxik -- thanks for bringing this to our attention again.

I think @dchelimsky's idea of making the signals rspec captures configurable is the right approach. This also fits in with #741 -- it adds support for a new signal and we want to make that configurable, too.

I'll try to get to this before the next minor release.

Closing in favor of #1439.
