        Description

        If I start a java process in background using bourne shell and hit CTRL-C
        on the shell prompt, java process dies.

        Here is how to reproduce

        -- have a bourne shell by typing /bin/sh
        -- do javac a.java
           a.java is listed below
        -- run a by typing java a &

           This will return to shell prompt because process was started in background.
        Now, hit CTRL-C, java process will die.

        --------------
        a.java

        public class a {
            public static void main(String[] args) {
                while (true) {
                    System.out.println("I am in while loop");
                }
            }
        }
        ---------------------------

        Please make a note that it happens only with java 1.4 and bourne shell.

        Here is the output of java -version command


        java version "1.4.0"
        Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-b92)
