Hello FreeCiv Dev's

Unfortunatily i came one CTRL-C while running a freeciv server, i was so
upset, and decided to write a patch to handle SIGINT the right way. I 
it as following:
The user needs to press CTRL-C twice within one second to shutdown the server,
so things as happened to me could not happen again to others. The patch
is pretty small, and i included preprocessor directives, to make sure, it
will not be included on Win32 machines, because i have no idea about signal
handling under windows. Would be great if that could be added one day...
Just apply the patch in the server/ directory as follows:
$>  patch < civserver-sigint.patch

(I wrote the patch for the 2.0.0-beta6 version)

It should compile without any warnings... testet with gcc-3.4.2 on FreeBSD
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email.

Thank you for reviewing this,


David Leder

P.S.: The patch is also available at
linux is a game, not a shame
