MachoPython doesn't do any event handling (except the initial 
decoding of the AppleEvent that started Python.app to get at the 
file being run). But I've also noticed that Control-C is 
equivalent to Command-. in many circumstances (not related to 
Python), so I think some lowlevel component of the system treats 
them as identical.

If this behaviour can be disabled I would guess it will be 
through the Carbon Event Manager, so maybe you should start 
looking there.

And please let me know if you find something:-)
