Ah, I figured it out what it is.  SIGWINCH:  signal is delivered to  
process when its terminal size changes.  I am running nginx not in  
daemon mode inside a screen.  When I resize the screen window then  
the children die.    I will try just running it in daemon without  
screen.  Just responding so that people encountering the same problem  
may find out what it is.
