The garbage collector needs to find the tops of each of the thread
stacks in the system. Currently, i believe it does this by sending a
SIGUSR1 signal to each thread where it will record the stack top and
notify the collector that it has stopped. So, when debugging, you
probably want to set gdb to ignore the signal unless you're debugging
that part of the process.
