Is the problem reproducible with a few lines of code that you can
provide? the following simple tests:

from enthought.traits import api as t
class foo(t.HasTraits):
    x = t.Int()
f = foo()
run ~/scratch/sleeper.py # script that sleeps so I can Ctrl-C

don't seem to show the problem...

It's possible that traits is installing a signal handler in there that
you could override back, but I'd like to see some small example to
reproduce the problem.
