I have python compiled with gcc 2.8.1 on irix 6.5 system. If I hit ^C when
readline is doing its thing, python locks up. Meanwhile, I have python
and readline compiled with sgi cc on another irix 6.5 system, and everything
So it appears to be a gcc thing.
On another note, if I hit ^C under readline on a *linux* python, it dies
immediately... bleah, readline would really suck if it weren't so darn
