executed the default action, terminate the process :-(

Try blocking sigint very first thing in main(), before any g_* calls,
then subsequent threads will inherit the signal mask with sigint

GDB sends the signal to its child, ie the process its debugging, but
signals received by any member go to the whole signal group which by
default includes GDB itself and your IDE.

Thats the traceback, whats the error message, I'm assuming something
like sigint received??
