SIGINT sent to executable

I think this is because
> Signal        Stop      Print   Pass to program Description
SIGINT        Yes       Yes     No              Interrupt

Stop mean that when inferior get a sigint, gdb will stop the inferior.

I think you can try to use command "handle" to set it to "No".
