  apt-add-repository doesn't recognize CTRL+C during fetching

Status in “software-properties” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 10.10, apt 0.8.3ubuntu7

  When trying to add a repository behind a proxy without the correct
  proxy settings or other network problems, apt-add-repository will
  stall and is unresponsive, especially to CTRL+C to cancel the current
  operation - which it should and cancel, like all the other well-
  behaving bash programs.
