Hi all-

We are facing one strange problem in fedora core 5 kshell, in the way it is handling the signal, SIGINT.

We have a shell script(in kshell) which spawns a process with a UI. When we issue SIGINT signal(using ctrl-C from the key board), the kshell itself is exiting instead of it ignoring the signal. This is rather unexpected behaviour. When we used other shells for this script, this behaviour is not appearing.

Can anyone please let me know what could be the issue here? Is it a bug in the core 5 k-shell?

My machine details:
Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux)
Kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5smp on an i686

# ksh --version
version sh (AT&T Labs Research) 1993-12-28 r
