In theory, the delete only happens after the waitfor() call, so whatever it is 
should have completed before we do anything that would cause a hang.  (That's 
probably why it hadn't been noticed before.)

CTRLALTDEL at least probably doesn't need to be removed from the list.  In the 
case of it triggering something other than a reboot or shutdown, it _should_ 
trigger more than once.  Just not until the previous call to it has finished 

A better fix might be to move the actual free to the loop in init_main, or 
something.  (Possibly the delete logic itself could move moved there, instead 
of deleting them in run_actions just flag them as dead and do the cleanup in 
that init_main loop...)

I'll wait for Eric to express an opinion...
