Error in atexit() when stopping with SIGTERM signal

Hi, I am running a compiled julia application in a docker container. In the application code I am registering a zero argument function closeAll by calling the atexit(closeAll). The closeAll function should be called before the application exits. Stopping the container with a SIGINT signal runs as expected. However, I am getting an error inside the closeAll function if stopping the container with a SIGTERM signal.

Is there any reason why stopping with these two signals behaves differently? Why do I get an error when stopping with SIGTERM signal?

Simplified example:

module LightPkg

function real_main()
atexit(closeAll)
while true
print(".")
sleep(1)
end
end

function closeAll()
println(“EXIT”)
end

function julia_main()
try
println(“START”)
real_main()
catch
println("\nCATCH")
return 1
end
return 0
end

end

By stopping the container with SIGINT signal

docker kill --signal=SIGINT container_name

I get the following logs from container:

START

CATCH
EXIT

I would expect the same logs when stopping with SIGTERM signal

docker kill --signal=SIGTERM container_name

but I get an error:

START

I am including also the Dockerfile
