GHCi & Cygwin

Hi all,

This message should maybe have been posted to a cygwin
mailing list, but I figured I would get a quicker answer

I have sucessfully installed the latest GHC on my (new)
Windows laptop.

I have also installed cygwin a while ago, and I really like
it. (I am doing all my work from a cygwin shell.)

The problem is that control-C is interpreted differently
running GHCi from a cygwin shell than from running it in a
normal Windows "command prompt" shell. (Control-C terminates
GHCi in cygwin, but does not in the command prompt.)

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?

(And maybe it is a general fix, since Hugs seems to suffer
from exactly the same problem...)
