Since I've been using Ruby I've noticed that a running Ruby script is\nhard to kill. Control-C won't do it. I have to use kill -9. Today I\nnotice it with Ruby 1.8.6 on OS X 10.4.9, but it's been this way since I\nstarted using Ruby 6 or so years ago on Mandrake Linux. Do I have the\nwrong expectations?
