I finally found some time to verify this. Two observations:

When I start an xterm and instantly hit ctrl-c I will see some ^C^C^C
until the bash is fully loaded. Afterwards ctrl-c no longer produces any

Invoking a zsh from that bash gives me a shell, that handles ctrl-c as
it should.

My conclusion is that this must be a fault of bash. Unfortunately
downgrading bash to 4.0-4 did not solve the problem.
