pending signals

I was wondering about following. If I have set of 3 signals. And they are all blocked.Now at some point in the program the set is unblocked. Which signal will be delivered first.This is my set....SIGTSTP,SIGQUIT,SIGINT.When I added them in the set and unblock them I did it in following order...
sigaddset(&mySet, SIGINT);
sigaddset(&mySet, SIGQUIT);
sigaddset(&mySet, SIGTSTP);
sigprocmask(SIG_UNBLOCK, &mySet, NULL);

Last cal will unblock all signals but which one will be delivered first. When I play with this it seems that SIGINT is the first one to be delivered.

We can't guess your environment.

With only three signals surely you can perm all combinations, tabulate and document the results ready for the next person who faces this dilemma.
