Thanks for the report.  This is actually something I had flagged to look
at after bash-4.4 was released:

      /* XXX - why do we set this every time through the loop?  And why do
         it if SIGINT is trapped in an interactive shell? */

It looks like not that many people trap SIGINT in an interactive shell.
