ev_signal and SIGSEGV, SIGABRT

Am I getting it right that it would be incorrect to use libev
ev_signal API to handle SIGSEGV?

In particular, libev will try to handle this synchronously, and
invoke the signal callback in some undefined order, possibly after some
other callback is invoked.

I'm going to use sigaction for this one, just wanted to double check.

Thank you,
