 Refs #10841. A fix for SEGFAULT handling.

 We may want to handle this differently later, but this works.
 We don't return from signalHandler if the signal is SEGV, ILL, BUS, or
 This ensures the signal isn't immediately re-raised on return.
 Also, after waiting 1 second for any cleanup actions which will
 only happen if this signal didn't occur in the UI thread, we
 call the default handler which will generate a core if necessary
 and then exit the program.
