Thanks for the report.  I made some changes in this area between bash-4.1
and bash-4.2 in response to a Posix interpretation:


I think Posix is ambiguous about the disposition of signals that are
ignored when a new shell or subshell is started, or at least open to
differing interpretations -- ksh93 behaves as bash-4.2 does, for instance,
where dash and mksh behave like bash-4.1 -- but I think it's better not to
deliberately introduce an incompatibility.

I will revert to the bash-4.1 behavior for the next release.  This may
or may not come out as a patch to bash-4.2.
