I did not fully understand what you were asking previously, Brian, when you asked if I used terminal emulation. I used Konsole 
which is a terminal emulator, so, yes, I did use terminal emulation. But, I did not use terminal emulation *within the IDE*.

I have now tried that. The IDE defaults to using Konsole (I don't see any way to configure my preferred emulator within the 
IDE), and the program works as expected even with another copy running independently in a separate Konsole.

BTW, Benoît, Ctrl-C works on my system giving a signal Const of Integer = 2. This leads me to believe that the example on the 
wiki[1] is incorrect when it shows to catch CTRL+C in a terminal with, "Signal[Signal.SIGTERM].Catch". I don't know who authored 
that nor the reason for that particular text. Am I right in thinking it should be "Signal[Signal.SIGINT].Catch"?
