Has anyone noticed that the interrupt priority of Abort seems to have 
changed in 5.0. CTRL-period used to have a pretty good chance of stopping 
an operation, unless it had already been passed to the front-end. Now it 
seems that Abort cannot stop in a loop. For example, I keep pressing 
CTRL-period repeatedly during an error in a function loop. The Aborted 
message shows up on the screen, (and I assume something terminated in the 
loop), but the loop keeps going to completion. This happens with both 
explicit loops and Map. Is there anyway to get Abort to be more aggressive. 
I'm killing the kernal much more often in 5.0 than in 4.x. Admittedly, this 
is connected with my trial-and-error style of programming, but its still
