It's not an error, it is "information".

In libntp/syssignal.c, there is a function called 'signal_no_reset',
which we call in order to "set up" the flags we expect to see for a
given signal.

As I recall, we handle all of the cases we know about/expect.

If, after handling all of the signal flags we know about, we discover
there are *other* flags still set, we simpy announce those flags.

You should be able to look at the documentation for your sigaction()
system call and in somewhere like /usr/include/sys/signal.h and see what
flag has the value 0x20000.
