(I'm going through old bug reports that have unfortunately gotten no
attention yet.)

I tried reproducing this bug in Emacs 27, but I get:

waiting for b
b: stopped (signal)

waiting for a
a: killed

The exec_sentinel_unwind function no longer exists in Emacs, so the code
in this area has changed in the nine years since you reported this bug.

Do you still see this bug in more modern Emacs versions?
