I did use windows and experienced an issue, but a different one to what this bug report is about. And still do.

With each heart symbol representing a Ctrl-C.

The fact that boisgera and pekka.klarck experience different behaviour (i.e. console killed, no KeyboardInterrupt generated) indicates that they are not using windows, since they did not see heart symbols, as I do.

If it is windows only (requires evidence), then we *could* fix it by specializing the installer to default to a different console on windows.

But I don't like that solution. I'd rather the same console everywhere.

Doesn't jruby use jline as well? They must have had similar problems.
