No, why should it?  That would actually be rude behaviour for a library to randomly install
a signal handler - IIRC there has been discussions on that subject before.  The application
should be handling the signal (speaking in general here) because there may be other
application specific clean up or logic that needs to be done or possibly even ignoring the
signal all of which would be impossible if libcurses hijacked the signal.
