Not my fault, ask Microsoft. :-)

There are no signals on Windows. They're simulated in the C runtime
library, and if that library happens to miss (or can't catch) a ^C while
waiting for input, then that's just tough luck. It's even possible that
the apr_poll code doesn't work on stdin -- wouldn't be surprised at all
if it didn't.
