kill -2 is too powerful

Fri Jul 13 06:58:00 GMT 2007

I have a Console App which catches "Ctrl-C" and then gives the user an
option "e(x)it \ (r)un".  I learned that I needed to set CYGWIN = "notty"
and so now the console app catches Ctrl-C properly within a Cygwin console.
I need to run the program as a service however, net start IB, and then I use
pslist to view its process number and do a kill -2 PID I was hoping for my
exit/run prompt, but it terminated instead. Does anyone know what's going on
or a better way to do this without reprogramming the VB.NET code?
