If you have Microsoft online help installed anywhere, search for the C signal 
function. You will see that Ctrl-C support under NT is not nice for processing.
Typically, NT will start a new thread to process the Ctrl-C. And I have seen no 
way to stop it and to be able to stay in Python interpreter when Ctrl-C is 
typed (using Python signal handling module).

If you find a solution... thanks to indicate what it is.
