Adam Olsen <rhamph at gmail.com> added the comment:
Signals can directly kill a process. Try SIGTERM to see this. SIGINT is caught and handled by Python, which just happens to default to a graceful exit (unless stuck in a lib that prevents that.) Try pasting your script into an interactive interpreter session and you'll see that it doesn't exit at all.
