Re: [PATCH 01/11] test-lib: fix interrupt handling with 'dash' and '--verbose-log -x'

So... the clean-up actions do not get a chance to run because the
shell that is going to execute would be killed by SIGPIPE because
tee that is reading from it goes away?

While I like the patch very much, I also wonder if it is possible to
tell tee to not to die upon seeing INT, TERM, etc.  When the shell
upstream of tee exits (after performing clean-up actions), tee that
is reading from it will exit, too, and will not be left behind (I do
not mean to say it that is a better alternative solution---I am just
trying to see if I read the problem correctly from the description
given above).
