I just installed the latest master on FreeBSD, for 24bit colour support, but nothing happens when I press ^C. When I do `sleep 5` and then ^C while still sleeping, "^C" gets printed on the screen, but it doesn't exit. When I open up vim and press ^C, I get a message "Type :quit<Enter> to exit Vim" which is what I normally get. When I type ^C while in a prompt, literally nothing happens. When I start up bash (my normal shell is ZSH), I get an interesting message:

bash: cannot set terminal process group (24672): Inappropriate ioctl for device
bash: no job control in this shell
