Thanks for the bug report Miguel.  I think the reason we're doing this today is because we're using Console.ReadKey which returns the raw key info instead of EOF when there's no input available.  I've opened CodePlex bug 904 to track the issue (http://www.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?ProjectName=IronPython&WorkItemId=904).

Just to get your Unix input on this: Would us checking Environment.OSVersion.Platform and switch from Ctrl-Z to Ctrl-D for Unix sound ok to you?  The reason I ask is we don't have Environment.EndOfFileDescriptor :).

    Something in IronPython is now looking for Control-z, which is fine on Windows, but on Unix, Control-Z stands for "suspend application".

    In Unix, the end-of-file descriptor is control-d;   Am not sure why
the code is actually looking for a Control-Z, while it could be checking whether there is input available instead.
