Mabye it's possible (though somehow I doubt it) to do the equivalent of:

        stty quit ^Y
        stty intr ^\

which under unix will re-map SIGQUIT to CTRL-Y and then make CTRL-\
generate SIGINT, though it would disable CTRL-C since only one key can
be mapped to any given signal at a time.

I.e. instead of having CTRL-BREAK generate SIGQUIT, if indeed that's
what it's doing, make it generate SIGINT instead.

The other alternative might be to use a clue-by-4 to convince the
developers to use CTRL-C instead.
