Since I've been using Ruby I've noticed that a running Ruby script is 
hard to kill. Control-C won't do it. I have to use kill -9. Today I 
notice it with Ruby 1.8.6 on OS X 10.4.9, but it's been this way since I 
started using Ruby 6 or so years ago on Mandrake Linux. Do I have the 
wrong expectations?
