There are a couple of ways to start jobs, and they result in slightly
different process hierarchies.  In some cases the top process in this
hierarchy is a shell or something that you don't "think about".  If
this top job in the hierarchy doesn't catch the USR2 signal, it will
die from it.  When it does, the rest of the processes seem to get a
KILL signal.

So do check out what your process hierarchy looks like, and ensure
that the immediate child of the shepherd is a process which catches
the USR2 signal.
