The problem occurred as soon as a functions was called...

The problem was that `dosavetrap()' when called from `starttrapscope()' 
removed the definition for `TRAPEXIT()' but didn't reset the entry for 
it in `sigtrapped[]'. In `endtrapscope()' we tested `sigtrapped[SIGEXIT]' 
which was still `!= 0' even though we had removed the handler function. 
Then we tried to get the function definition, got a NULL pointer and
later tried to execute that. Bang.

This patch resets the `sigtrapped[]' entry in `dosavetrap()'. I'm not
sure if this is enough, maybe we have to execute some code from
`unsettrap()' there, too. So I think the final solution has to wait
until Peter reappears.
