I understand but it's how it works.  If we want to change this, probably
we need a similar interface as we have with finalization.

Are you certain that this is the signal-handling thread and not the
finalizer thread?  I suspect it is the finalizer thread, and that it
gets properly shut down before the fork.

Regarding seeing the warning: do you do make some other binding for the
default warning port in Guix?
