Can't exit Node-Red (in console window) with CTRL+C

I think that this is an issue with how running an uncompiled script works in AutoIt. You can test the issue with this:

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
Local $iPid = Run(@ComSpec & ' /k ping -t ', '', @SW_SHOW, $RUN_CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE)

If you run that from SciTE and try to do Ctrl + c to cancel it, or Ctrl + BREAK, neither work and the ping continues. However, if you set the flag


And then compile the script and run it, you ARE able to cancel it with Ctrl + c. So I think that if you're looking for that Ctrl + c functionality, just keep in mind that you'll need to compile the script to get it. Here's my full test:

#Region ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#EndRegion ;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****

#include <AutoItConstants.au3>
Local $iPid = Run(@ComSpec & ' /k ping -t ', '', @SW_SHOW, $RUN_CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE)


We ought not to misbehave, but we should look as though we could.
