Bug Description

When using 'bzr shell' in a Windows console (CMD), closing the console window using the close button in the top right causes the following SIGBREAK error to be reported:

bzr> ** SIGBREAK received, entering debugger
** Type 'c' to continue or 'q' to stop the process
** Or SIGBREAK again to quit (and possibly dump core)
> h:\bzrlib\breakin.pyo(41)_debug()

So perhaps this would be better solved in the Bazaar Windows installer, by modifying the bzr.exe launcher to set this environment variable unless it's already set?
