The following patch fixes it. The end-of-file indicator is still set,
fgets returns NULL when ctrl-c is pressed, and the code checks for
feof(fp) which is true. PyErr_CheckSignals() isn't called.
This patch calls clearerr on the filepointer and consequently after
ctrl-c feof(fp) is false and PyErr_CheckSignals is called.

What I don't understand is why the backtrace says the KeyboardInterrupt
happens in raw_input. PyErr_CheckSignals must be called on the "pass"
statement otherwise something would be fundamentally broken (But I guess
then python somehow saves the last real bytecode command).
