Subprocesses and Ctrl-C handling on windows

I have a python script which spawns a subprocess that takes a few
seconds to complete. If I hit Ctrl-C while the subprocess is
executing, sometimes the python script and the subprocess end silently
and I get back to the shell prompt and sometimes I get the
KeyboardInterrupt exception. Is there any kind of method underneath
this seemingly random behavior?
