Seems to me that suggesting to "expect signal SIGINT when the program
is resumed" is bogus in this case.  That can happen when you ctrl-c
the terminal, because a SIGINT ends up queued in both the inferior
and gdb, but I'm not seeing why that would happen in response to
the user typing "q" on a pagination prompt.  I think prompt_for_continue
should call throw_quit("Quit") directly instead of quit().

Odd that almost no other ctrl-c test checks this:

What's going on?

I don't think it is obvious.
