Bug#390160: jed: terminates unexpectedly on Ctrl-G

Package: jed
Version: 0.99.18-5
Severity: normal

When using jed as the last element of a xargs pipe, such as
grep -l foo /some/path | xargs jed
to edit a lot of files containing some string, jed sometimes gets
confused. If one later decides to abort a jed command by typing
Ctrl-G, jed terminates silently and drops the user back to the shell.
Nothing is saved, and the terminal stays in a strange mode.

This is, unfortunately, not strictly reproducible, but happens
reasonably often if more than, like, five files were given on the
command line.
