Typing C-g, which runs interrupt_signal, runs quit_throw_to_read_char
instead of Fsignal during when waiting_for_input is set (as it is
during wait_reading_process_output).  If I understand correctly, the
purpose is to enable read-char to return a `C-g' character; and that's
why it's both undesirable and unnecesssary to use a
record_unwind_protect inside wait_reading_process_output.

I'll go ahead and revert the 2006-08-01 change.
