Not a bug

Cannot reproduce:

dualbus@yaqui ~/t % bash
dualbus@yaqui:~/t$ cat < <(cat)
GNU bash, version 4.3.33(1)-release (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu)
dualbus@yaqui:~/t$ exit
dualbus@yaqui ~/t % ~/local/gnu/bash/devel/bin/bash
dualbus@yaqui:~/t$ cat < <(cat)
GNU bash, version 4.4.0(1)-devel (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu)

Final line did not display:

When you execute and then ctrl-C this command, BASH exits.

I was executing a command, and made a typo on sed -- left off the filename. I couldn't ctrl-c the command, so I suspended and used kill:

This caused bash to exit. I was in screen at the time, and the index in the list of screens disappeared, processes that were backgrounded in that bash session were killed. This seems erroneous. Another distilled this significantly, and this command exibits the same behavior on ctrl-c:
