I just noticed that /usr/bin/kill doesn't handle -N signals, where -N is
a number in 1.5.4. That's due to the recent inclusion of getopt into
the DLL. I fixed this recently and, if you download a recent snapshot,
this particular problem would be solved. Unfortunately, you'd be trading
this problem for other odd signal problems so I wouldn't recommend using
a snapshot quite yet.
