Subject: [Caml-list] OCaml signal handlers (Sys.signal) and C code
I've noticed that a callback registered using Sys.signal function for
the Sys.sigalrm signal isn't called while executing external C code.

The execution is delayed until the C code execution is over.

Is there any way to avoid this behaviour? (Actually the only solution I
see is to modify the C code so that handler is registered there, but I'm
working with an external library which is not under my own control)

Is this an intended behaviour or a bug?
