It's not a Perl thing. *No* Unix program can trap SIGKILL. Yes, there
is a very good reason, which will become obvious once you write a
runaway script that's trapped a load of signals.
I suspect you're actually getting SIGPIPE from your CGI script when
you're trying to print stuff to a browser that's gone away. Are you
trapping that signal?
