Subject: FastCGI traps signals?

I have been trying to use signals to my (Perl) FastCGI scripts to cause
them to shut down gracefully.  I have been unsuccessful so far, since it
seems the FastCGI library traps all signals and does an exit.  Are there
any signals it _doesn't_ trap?  I was extremely surprised when I found it
traps SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2.
