comment-region doesn't need to test that explicitly, it is tested in
many underlying primitives.  Moreover, on a TTY, C-g triggers a
SIGINT, which should cause a throw to top-level even if quit-flag is
not tested, just because it's a signal.

Can you see if SIGINT is delivered to Emacs when you type C-g on that
console?
