One has always seen this from time to time on any system, and I do see it
once in a while on Linux.  I believe this happens when a second SIGINT is
received while quit-flag is still set.  That may just mean that the whole
path of the first signal getting handled, the quit getting up to Lisp and
being handled, is a bit slower so that it's done all done by the time you
do a second C-c and a second SIGINT interrupts that path.  Or it could mean
something else like the original signal is delayed in reaching Emacs for
some reason so that it appears to have taken a long time to process.
