[Pkg-gnupg-maint] Bug#694635: gnupg: gpg froze with a zombie after a Ctrl-C (intr character)

Package: gnupg
Version: 1.4.12-6
Severity: normal

I use GPG from Mutt to automatically check signatures, but for the
last one, it was taking too long, so that I did a Ctrl-C. However
this didn't interrupt gpg. Other Ctrl-C's had no effect. The gpg
process was still running, with a zombie.

A Ctrl-\ killed gpg, though.
