There's your misunderstanding -- gdb is not suggesting that you quit.
"Quit" is gdb's standard response to SIGINT, ie. ctrl-c. Ie. it is
responding "ok, I have quit", even though it was not doing anything.
Possibly it would make sense to suppress the "Quit" in this
circumstance, and just print another prompt. But I wouldn't
call it a high priority issue, and in async circumstances
it might not even be the right thing to do.
