It's as if the C-c is being eaten before it gets to whatever I *want* to
eat it, but all I'm doing is using (when I'm on OS X) to
ssh to the Solaris box, nothing fancy in the middle like screen.  And of
course I can ssh to Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OS X from the same
terminal and C-c C-cs just like it should.

Oh no, that Does The Right Thing, in that it quits the process with
