I received this problem report (Kurt is the IDLEFORK developer).  Does
anybody know what could be the matter here?  What changed recently???

I find that

       while 1: pass

doesn't respond to a KeyboardInterrupt on Python2.3b1 on either
WinXP or W2K.  Is this generally known?  I couldn't find any mention 
of it.

      while 1: a = 0 

is fine on 2.3b1, and both work on Python2.2.
