So what is the fix for Windows then?  We seem to have the same problem there, that interrupting things like

  sleep (10);


  inv (large_matrix);

doesn't work.

Maybe using GenerateConsoleCtrlEvent [1] might do it. At least, it looks like you'd then follow the same code path as in the CLI version.
