Description ak 1999-05-16 20:14:38 UTC
xterm cannot process SIGINT. When it gets a SIGINT this
happens (shown from strace):

select(7, [4 6], [], NULL, NULL)        = ? ERESTARTNOHAND
(To be restarted)
--- SIGINT (Interrupt) ---
fork()                                  = 9747
wait4(9747, NULL, 0, NULL)              = 9747
--- SIGCHLD (Child exited) ---

after that it hangs and can only be killed with
SIGTERM/SIGKILL. This is unique to the RH6 xterm,
Dickey's latest version or earlier versions didn't
have that problem.

It has been observed on a Alpha too.
