Blocking INT is the second thing done in the function:

    setopt localtraps; trap '' INT

I thought: sched will run faster than "setopt localtraps..." and this
way give better guarantee that rescheduling will not be stopped. So I
chosen to sched first, then block trap, but can reverse that, no

"always" looked promising, too bad it's still subject to Ctrl-C
