On this report, both implementations (Python and C) failed:

FAIL: test_send_signal (test.test_subprocess.POSIXProcessTestCase)
FAIL: test_send_signal (test.test_subprocess.ProcessTestCasePOSIXPurePython)


The problem is maybe that the SIGINT is ignored on these particular platforms (FreeBSD and Mac OS X). I worked on this topic recently (see issue #3137) and I cannot guarantee that exceptions are still ignored somewhere. I can investigate if you give me access to the platform.

My procedure was to run python in gdb, set a break point, and send the signal at different points until the KeyboardInterrupt is no more ignored anywhere.
