I can confirm that this happens on my windows box as well.

This is another instance of jline showing clear problems.

Here are some more

System.console().readLine only reads a single character

Windows only CTRL-C no longer works since Jython 2.5.2

KeyboardInterrupt does not catch ctrl-c

I'm sure there are more.

Is it time we considered shipping the old InteractiveConsole with the standard installation, instead of jline? Which clearly wasn't tested with all platforms, and is quite a gnarly external dependency to get to grips with, what with all of its platform specific behaviours.

If people want the fancy command line editing facilities of jline, we can make it available to them as an option.
