screenshot of F20 aTC1, after pressing PRINT SCREEN key
Description of problem:
If one presses the 'print screen' key, anaconda dies with a 'pane is dead' message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F20 aTC1 (20.8-1)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with 'text' boot parameter
2. select 'text mode' when prompted
3. press 'print screen' key
'pane is dead'
either handle the print screen (unlikely on text mode) or nothing,
just do not crash.
i do not know if this also happens on a physical host.

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.
