Ok, now that we're in 1.4_ALPHA, I'll complain again.. :-)
With empty /etc/csh.* and no /root/.cshrc and /root/.login, I
*still* see the control-c when I type it! (but it interrupts)
# ^C
# ^C

If I use /bin/tcsh, I get the interrupt, but it does not print
the '^C' also.
This has been attributed to a broken /bin/sh in the past, but
it is still broken on my machines.  I see it on i386/vax/alpha/next68k
all with wscons.

What am I doing wrong??? :(
