Signal SIGINT ignored during socket.accept

I have a listening socket, self.lsock, which is used in an accept() call
endpoint = self.lsock.accept()
The problem is that if control-C is pressed it is not recognised until
something connects to that socket. Only when the accept() call returns
is the signal seen.
The question, then, is how to get the signal to break out of the
accept() call. This is currently on Windows but I would like it to run
on Unix too. I see from the web that this type of thing is a common
problem with the underlying C libraries but I cannot quite relate the
posts I have found to Python.
