Subject: [PATCH] timeout: revert signal propagation enhancement

This effectively reverts the unreleased commit 5a647a05

* src/timeout.c (main): Don't propagate signals from the monitored
process, as on Linux /proc/sys/kernel/core_pattern could still
handle them and cause false reports against `timeout`

I found a more reliable way to disable core dumps,
so another attempt at this is attached.
