Cygwin kills non-cygwin processes when it is processing an unhandled
CTRL-C. It's worked that way for years and I, for one, rely on that
This is one case where we can't accommodate native windows programs
Do you know of a way to gain control of a service started by cygrunsrv so
that I could do a manual control-c -- like maybe redirect tty to a service?
The app does work in cygwin with ctrl-c, I just lose control of my ability
to hit ctrl-c when I run it as a service (which is what I think I have to do
since I want to start it from ssh and have my ssh call not hang
