Add to top of script:
trap '' SIGINT SIGTERM
does equivalent of SIG_IGN (do nothing) on named signals.
$ info bash trap
$ help trap
in bash gives you more info.
Watch out for subshells, as signals are reset in subshells,
so you will need to set up the trap in all subshells.
Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
