Comment 3 David Shea 2013-08-26 14:45:13 EDT
From the screenshot, anaconda appears to have received Ctrl-\, which sends a SIGQUIT to the process. What keystroke we receive when print screen is sent is completely out of our control, and changing the default SIGQUIT behavior could interfere with debugging.
