Since you have not told us what the platform is, there is no way to
guess what signal 7 means.  Please look in its /usr/include/signal.h
(or more likely, some sub-file that includes) to find out the symbolic
name of the signal, and report that.

For instance, on the machine I'm on at the moment, I find this in
/usr/include/sys/signal.h:

#  define _SIGEMT	7	/* EMT instruction */

but I rather doubt that's what it means on yours.
