Tramp propagates all signals to the main thread, otherwise they are not
visible. But this might be problematic for the quit signal.

I could not reproduce the problem myself, but this was said already by
Gemini that it isn't easy. The following patch does not propagate the
quit (and debug) signals do the main thread. Does it help?

However, if we apply this I don't know how to quit (let's say) 250
threads. One quit signal is good for one thread only. I believe we need
also a mechanism to quit many threads at once.

Best regards, Michael.
