Ich zitiere mal ein bisschen weiter:

  If a signal is caught while any of the wait() calls are pending, the call
  may be interrupted or restarted when the signal-catching routine returns,
  depending on the options in effect for the signal; see discussion of
  SA_RESTART in sigaction(2).

Und signal(3):

  For some system calls, if a signal is caught while the call is executing
  and the call is prematurely terminated, the call is automatically
  restarted.  Any handler installed with signal(3) will have the SA_RESTART
  flag set, meaning that any restartable system call will not return on
  receipt of a signal.  The affected system calls include read(2),
  write(2), sendto(2), recvfrom(2), sendmsg(2) and recvmsg(2) on a communi-
  cations channel or a low speed device and during a ioctl(2) or wait(2).
