Sorry for the shortcuts.  It was not a patch but rather what I touched 
to make it working. I promise to use diff -u next time. print-s were my 
way of debugging.

Re the problem itself. I still encounter it under newest version of 
Twisted 1.3 and Python on Linux 2.4. But not on M$. Since it is a part 
of bigger construct I work on I can just send the sources. As soon as 
get some time I will send the narrowed down version.

For now I can suspect it is related to the threads I use in it 
extensively. I atested that reactor without those threads is ctrl-c-able.

I will come back to that at some point, it still intrigues me and is IMO 
the best way to learn internals of any framework ...
