Not likely. Cygwin handles Ctrl-C by generating SIGINT. This only
works reliably with Cygwin processes. There's
$ /bin/kill -f <PID>
to call the Win32 function TerminateProcess(pid) on a non-Cygwin
process or an unresponsive Cygwin process.
As I noted, it was not unique to control-C. In any case, unfortunate to
hear that Cygwin will not address this issue. kill -f is clearly not
desirable for doing a clean shutdown of a process.
