    Avoid signal race condition on start-up
    This only restores the signal mask after signal handlers are in place
    and the daemon has completely daemonised to avoid a race condition in
    the start-up phase of nslcd where a signal could be sent to nslcd
    causing it to quit or fail to write information to the parent process.
