The "expected" behaviour is that you never run it manually :). Looking
at the code nothing appears to be explicitly ignoring the break signal,
it looks like a side-effect of other behaviour.
File a bug. It's low priority, but it should be looked at (you can make
it high priority if you want, but it means I will drop one of your other
bugs to work on it).
