[lldb-dev] [PATCH] Unexpected group-stop with threading under Linux

Hey Todd, great! I think if we end up in there and it's not a SIGSTOP then
we have no idea what's going on and it's not clear what the correct
behaviour would be. I'm happy to wrap the whole thing in an if statement
checking for SIGSTOP though if you think that's best, though it's not clear
whether the thing to do is to continue or return at that point.
