On CVS 1.11.5 on Solaris someone did a "cvs tag" (not rtag)

This is a local repository.

Does CVS not handle this cleanly?
It's supposed to -- it works for me.  All I can think of is that someone
did something more drastic than ctrl-c (like ctrl-\) or managed to do
ctrl-c a second time before CVS had finished cleaning up.

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"?

BFN.  Paul.

I like the "stop interrupting me" suggestion.

Patches enthusiastically accepted!
