^G/^C in shell on Windows

Well, it is kind of a known thing...
The command "erl" on windows corresponds to "erl -oldshell" on Unix, and
the "-oldshell" option causes ^G to do just what you describes. Note
also that almost no command line editing works. This shell can (on Unix)
be used against non-terminals e.g pipes.
^C on Unix brings up the break handler menu as you describes, but
rumours here say that we could not get the break handler menu to work on
Windows so it was disabled. Therefore you exit the emulator, but you
should not have gotten a break handler menu. That is probably a bug.
