Windows 7 64-bit (on the metal, not in a VM), can confirm. Holding down Ctrl+C will (eventually) halt Python on all the versions I have installed: 2.3, 2.7, 3.0, 3.1, 3.2. (All of these are 32-bit Pythons). Haven't done anything silly like try to install readline on Windows.

I also tried it on cygwin Python (2.6), held down for maybe 20 seconds, didn't crash.
