If by hung you mean the application ignores SIGINT instead of exiting, 
then Ctrl-C indeed wouldn't work, even in Xterm. If you just mean stuck 
as in a "busy-loop", Ctrl-C works here. Can you give an example 
script/application that hangs by your definition?

I'm not sure why sending SIGKILL from another xterm to the errant 
process would kill Geany though, that sounds weird.
