Isn't that the difference between SIGINT (usually Ctrl-C) and SIGQUIT
(usually Ctrl-\)? IMHO, the SIGQUIT handler should quit immediately,
with minimal clean-up, and the SIGINT handler should do a full clean-up
after displaying a message (and I agree that a second SIGINT should
abort the clean-up immediately).
