GP handling of SIGINT (Linux)

Hello list,

while hacking with GP and shell scripts under Linux, I noted the following:

When using GP non-interactively (gp -f -q < >output),
it only handles a SIGINT once. The first SIGINT is caught and interrupts the current command (as usual), but any further SIGINTs do nothing. I don't understand how come this behaviour is different from an interactive GP, where multiple SIGINTs can be cought.

Is this a feature or a bug?
