[PATCH] bin_umask(): Queue signals around umask().

Otherwise, a signal handler might create files while the temporary umask
is in effect.

Question.  The umask(2) syscall appeared in 1979, according to FreeBSD +
Wikipedia.  That's 40 years ago.  How come that there isn't a non-destructive
getter for the process's current umask value yet?

It's on my list to make the same change for arithmetic evaluation.  I think
queueing should be placed in mathparse(), but I need to review that again.
