Description cmmiller 2000-08-28 10:47:26 EDT
In /bin/mail, when composing a message, a double-interrupt should kill 
the letter. (^C^C) The first interrupt is caught, but the second is not. 
Pressing ^D -after- the second (or more) ^C will kill the letter.

  To reproduce:

mybox:~> mail fakeuser
Subject: test double-intr

  This is a test.. ^C
(Interrupt -- one more to kill letter)
mybox:~> rpm -qf `which Mail`
