well, setcbrk(0) certainly does what i asked -- i no longer get killed
when there's no read outstanding.

i'm not quite happy with this, however.  i'd rather be informed via a
callback that the user has entered ctrl-c, much the way i can be informed
of ctrl-break when i use _go32_want_ctrl_break()/_go32_was_ctrl_break_hit().

is there any reason in principle that the following code shouldn't work?
it doesn't seem to.  is there something basically different between the
way ctrl-c and ctrl-break handlers are invoked, that i'm missing here?

(this was copied/edited directly from the code for the want/was_ctrl_break
