#1228 closed bug (fixed)

GHCi freezes in Windows upon pressing Ctrl+C (always, not just under cygwin)

Start GHCi 6.6. It can be started by double clicking the exe, starting it from cmd or from cygwin; it doesn't matter.

Enter [1..], and press Ctrl+C (Ctrl+Break has the same effect). GHCi freezes, and can only be closed from the Windows task manager.

GHCi 6.4 does not freeze on Ctrl+C.

I'm using Windows XP SP2, 32 bit version.

This bug was fixed as part of my modifications to make Windows use the IO manager for signals. 6.6.1 will have working C (again) on Windows.
