bug developed in bash in recent release...ignores control-c if typed during input.

Normally if I type control-c, it aborts the line I am on, and gives me a new prompt.

After an upgrade a few weeks ago (and retried today with a fresh re-inst of bash), the control-c has been getting ignored!

... have to remember line clear... the control-c doesn't echo -- just ignored.

If I look at stty, the setting there says
> stty
speed 38400 baud; line = 0;
kill = ^X; susp = ^Y;
-echoe -echok -echoctl -echoke
/Users/law> stty -a
speed 38400 baud; rows 60; columns 80; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^X; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>;
eol2 = <undef>; swtch = ^Z; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Y; rprnt = ^R;
werase = ^W; lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;

with relevant parts being the -ignbrk (don't ignore break), intr=^C -- control-c still set as interrupt char, though maybe it wasn't on before, but I tried it..
(it's on on my linux box)... made no difference...

still ignores controls-c

BUT -- if I do a stty ignbrk -- then, it works the way it used to.

So is the fact that the settings of 'ignore break' on stty a new feature,
fodder for the 'incident queue', or what?
