Right. How about I just don't send SIGKILL at all for yum?

That would be best, yes.

We then probably have a situation where cancel (sometimes?) doesn't seem to work (within a reasonable time) but non-working rpm is far worse than non-working PK cancel. And rpm's responsiveness to SIGINT can certainly be improved a good deal, I'm just looking at how to best deal it and some other signal related issues which currently are pretty broken.
