As regular readers may realize, I have had problems with it crashing with no messaging. The last two nights, it crashed in a write call with a SIGPIPE signal.
Now, I don't routinely trap signals for the same reason that
catch (Exception) is a bad idea, namely they generally mean something bad happened and everything needs to stop so it can be fixed. There are exceptions to this rule of thumb of course, but generally it's no bueno.
