 SIGABRT is used to generate a core dump of a deadlocked program, but our
 SIGABRT handler will not work when the thread that is deadlocked is the UI
 thread in which the QSocketNotifier runs. This is related to the issue in
 #10841. It could be appropriate to return from the SIGABRT handler, the
 problem is that if we do we may never actually abort.
