stty sanity in prompts

I've been an avvid user of tcsh for quite a while and then switched to
bash (of course :*) ).

There is one problem that bash has and tcsh doesn't, and that I can't find
any reference to anywhere.

The problem is: When a program changes the echo mode of the terminal, and
you kill it with CTRL-C, you will not see what you are typing.

I never saw this behaviour with tcsh.

Is this a bug, or a feature? It took me _quite_ a while before I
discovered 'stty sane', and I can see that many users would be really
frustrated finding it.

Thanks for any insights, and hopefully, fixes :)
