I can't get this to work. I'm a babe-in-the-woods when it comes to
elisp, but doesn't the save-some-buffers need a non-nil argument to
make it save all? Otherwise, it will try to prompt the (non-existent)
user for each buffer.

Would it be
   (add-hook 'signal-USR1-hook '(save-some-buffers t)) ?

That didn't seem to work either. I also tried just putting a function
which doesn't take any arguments (delete-other-windows). No effect
there either.
