Can't help you much here because I can't reproduce the problem.  I compiled
your program and ran it and I was still able to use the system just fine
as it was scrolling numbers past.  I was also able to CTRL-C the program
from the terminal and it stopped without any problems.  Nor did I see
any unusual memory usage.
