Unfortunately the sqlplus session was still running in the background when I
tried the 'print -f exit' inside the trap.  However, that got me rethinking
the problem.  What worked was the the following:

trap 'kill %2;kill %1;exit' 1 2 3 15

I realized that I had two background jobs running, the sqlplus session and
the first while loop containing the SQL.  So the trick was to kill the first
while loop (%2), then the sqlplus (%1) and finally exit the second while
loop.  No errors now when I Ctl-C and no background processes left running.

Thanks for your feedback, it did help.

You could try 'print -p exit; exit;' in the trap command to exit gracefully
