Just for clarity:  spawing a child process is the only way to keep the
testrunner from killing the zopectl shell.  I have no idea why OSX would
cause EINTR in that case, but I would rather not revert here (I run
tests *all day long* from within the zopectl shell, interleaving with
'fg', 'start', 'stop', etc.)

If anyone has a fix for OSX which doesn't remove the child process, I'm
all for that (but can't do the work myself).
