"Spoke too soon".

#11906 Look at the error message!  Look at the error message! 

In this case, read the output. A search for "POSIX::SigRT" throws up results
seemingly for POSIX. I *think* that they are all instances of, so
the files do contain POSIX::SigRT within them, but the section it presents as
a highlight has the POSIX of C<package POSIX;> emboldened.

So, um, fail.

I hope it gets better. It's going to need to, to be useful.
