[IRCServices Coding] DUMPCORE only unhandles SIGSEGV?

     SIGFPE only happens on divide by zero, and in the few places where
Services divides by a variable the variable is already tested for being
nonzero.  SIGQUIT is user-generated.  SIGABRT isn't generated at all.
SIGILL only occurs if your compiler is broken or you run a binary compiled
for the wrong CPU.
