gdb: continuing program stopped by SIGINT (Ctrl-C)


I’m new with gdb so here might be an easy question:

how is it possible to continue a process that has been stopped by SIGINT
(pressing Ctrl-C) using gdb? After pressing Ctrl-C the inspected process (a
server) always stops inside a function of a standard library
(/x86/lib/ pidin shows the process STOPPED and I thought typing
“continue” should do the job, since according to the settings SIGINT
shouldn’t be passed to the process itself, but it doesn’t. Instead it exits
