Description Roland McGrath 2005-11-26 17:30:20 EST
Description of problem:

Yum never responds well to being interrupted by ^C or killed by a SIGTERM.
It usually doesn't stop at all.  When downloading, it will abort one transfer
and then move on to trying the next mirror as if the user interruption had been
a network error.  It usually is suspendable with ^Z, and then killing it
gracefully never works either.  I have to kill -9 it every time.
This is a very poorly-behaved program.

Every version I have ever seen.
