I'm assuming your platform is M$?  If so then is <Ctrl><Break> the same
as a tty generated SIGQUIT in Unix (usually a <CTRL><BackSlash>?  If so
then it's not a bug, but rather a "feature".  Users should not get into
the habit of using SIGQUIT unless they are actually attempting to
purposefully crash the program and debug the resulting core dump.

It would be possible, but generally speaking incorrect, for CVS to trap
