Use the source[1] Luke!

P.S. Geany is probably the only VTE program for me (including my own) 
where Ctrl+C doesn't do what it's supposed, instead it clears the VTE 
(which is wrong) and then freezes (which is especially wrong).  So you 
might have better luck looking at the source for GNOME-terminal or 
Xfce-terminal which both just kill the processes and return immediately 
to the same prompt.
