Host: win NT 4 + cygwin 1.4 dll
Target: Native or remote i386-pc
On a native target, with a simple "while(1);" program gdb crash when interrupting with ctrl-C a second time.
When setting a breakpoint in the while(1) loop, gdb does no crash withthe 2nd ctrl-C if the breakpoint was caught after the first.

On a remote target, the second ctrl-C will not crash gdb but it will not be caught.If a O packet is received from the target or a breakpoint is caught then i'm ablle to "ctrl-C" again.

The probelm also appears with the insgight GUI but in a slightly different way.

Nobody reported a similar problem yet. But I can repeat the situation with 100% success.
