Well for starters 0.30 is heaps out of date as far as the terminal
is concerned.  Many bugs have been fixed already.

However, I've never experienced/seen (or heard of) anything like this.

What shell are you launching this from?  Hmm, no, all linux shell's
should be ok, they have job control (some shells send ctrl-c to
all processes in a program group when you hit it).

Could you try this ... start one up, and attatch a trace to it (using
strace -o outputfile -p <pid number>), type 1 or 2 characters, and
then hit ctrl-c.  Send me anything that looks interesting in that.

Thats a bit of a long shot, but all I can think of.
