Andreas,

Thanks for tracking this down.

It appears that the change in this patch that seems to be responsible
would correspond to Alan's patch #2 option.

I wonder if we should just apply something like the below to revert
part of Pedro's patch?  This will fix this problems we're seeing (as
Alan already pointed out) as this effectively makes 'ours_for_output
()' the same as 'ours ()' again.

My concern would be whether there's going to be some place in GDB that
calls 'ours_for_output ()' and assumes Ctrl-C / Ctrl-Z will be
automatically passed to the inferior.  This change means they are now
passed to GDB instead, will GDB always forward these to the inferior
correctly?

Thanks,
Andrew
