How bad is it if this signal handler is not effective ?

I guess the tracing will remain on, pointlessly, which has a perf
impact but nothing else ?

How is it possible for the user to clean this up ?

Also: at the very least, you need to trap SIGTERM SIGHUP SIGPIPE.

It would be good to exit with the right signal by re-raising it.
