Yes.

'tee -i' ignores only INT, but not TERM and HUP.

What could work is something like:

  <re-executing the test script> | (
        # Ignore common interrupt signals to prevent 'tee' from dying
        # while the upstream test process still produces output.
        trap '' INT TERM HUP
        tee logfile
  )

but I'm not sure what should happen with a process ignoring HUP when
it still produces output to the terminal after that terminal has been
closed, i.e. this 'tee' process.  FWIW, In my quick test such a
process continued happily without receiving SIGPIPE or other
unpleasantness.
