Thanks, this mostly did it.  The expected behavior would be for the REPL
to quit immediately after ^D is pressed and not to wait for the enter,
but this is probably good enough for now ;)

I'll look through that code and see if I can remove the requirement for
the enter.  I can make a debian-specific patch if you'd prefer to keep
the current behavior.

I don't think I'll end up needing to do this, but I'll keep it in mind
if all else fails :)
