In case you break out of this loop, your shell may clean up the terminal settings for you. But you may also end up in a mode where stuff like backspace and return don’t work. Too much Unix software has the same problem. The magic Unix keystrokes to fix it:

  stty sane^J

but now we may return to our regularly scheduled discussion of resource management in the face of non-local control flow.
