Multiple ctrl-c's are something that is often seen done by
Unix types (although I don't know about this specific instance).
Should a sig-ignore be done whenever the ctrl-c handler is
invoked to handle "common user practice"?  Or a handler
that says "stop interrupting me, I'm working as fast as I can
on the original instruction"?
