After giving ghci a slow or infinite computation, for example 'let a = a in a'. It would be nice to be able to interrupt it rather than having to kill the process and start again. As far as I know, this is only a problem on windows.

I've put some work into improving this for 6.6.1. Now the C key combination should work properly in GHCi as long as you run GHCi from an ordinary Windows console.

There was already some C support, although it only worked for programs not compiled with -threaded. We started compiling GHCi with -threaded in version 6.4.2, and since then C has been broken on Windows.
