Question to remove break control statement in OGS5

Dear Marc,
I would support removing the break control statements, as I have similar
problems with parallel OGS5 versions. I have to get rid of the processes
manually with SIGKILL.
Greetings, Georg

Hi all,

I would like to remove the break control statements
https://svn.ufz.de/ogs/browser/trunk/sources/OGS/rf.cpp#L215
https://svn.ufz.de/ogs/browser/trunk/sources/OGS/rf.cpp#L303
from the official OGS5 version.

These statements prevent the user from passing a signal (SIGTERM) to
the OGS process that will then make the process to end itself
(normally, the shortcut for this is Ctrl+c). Maybe, this was
introduced to omit accidental copy commands in a terminal and by that
ending an OGS process in MS Windows. The downside of this is, that
this is now causing trouble on the UFZ cluster EVE by leaving zombie
processes and refusing to react on a SIGTERM, thus filling up
computing nodes.

Please object and tell me why you really need this, otherwise I would
like to remove with the next release.

Best,
Marc
