That would break the MacOS "force exit" thingy. Though sending a signal 
to the signal handling threads so that it would then send a SIGABRT 
looks very convoluted to me. If you want to force exit, call exit(), or 
otherwise _exit(), or otherwise abort(), or even raise(SIGKILL). That's 
more straight-forward. And if the signal comes from outside, don't put 
it in the list of handled signals in the first place. Making VLC crash 
itself when the user press Ctrl+C was really wrong.
