QProcess::startDetached/Unix: fix the resetting of SIGPIPE
This should have been SIG_DFL, as we're about to execute a child process. It's the child's responsibility to ignore SIGPIPE if it wants to, or get killed by it when it writes to an pipe with no readers. Qt itself does this for its own purposes (see qt_ignore_sigpipe() [until I can get some time to teach Linux about O_NOSIGPIPE]). Therefore, we ought to reset what we've done.
