(just a little bump for #50373: "consider disabling "Press Control-C again to abort")

There is definitely some weirdness going on. Using the CLI, I can hit Ctrl+C 3 times which generates the message about a fatal error and saving of workspace variables. However, I am still within the pager. If I then type 'q' to leave the pager, I find myself at Octave command line rather than the shell command line. And everything is fine. I can execute more commands, etc.

If I run some command that dumps a lot of text to the pager, hitting cntrl-C doesn't immediately break. So, continue hitting cntrl-C and the following happens:

It appears the line counter is advancing as normal. Maybe it is just the pager output that is broken at this point. Is hitting cntrl-C supposed to result in a fatal error? Or just break out of the pager?
