Relying on a fixed relation number <-> SYMBOLIC named isn't very portable.
For Linux and SIGBUS I have to note that SIGBUS didn't exist for long
times under Linux. Since the i386 doesn't generate a bus error exception
you should expect the unexpected :-( See also signal(7) which only documents
the i386 behaviour.
