If they're not closely related, then generally you should put each in
a separate message, ideally with a more meaningful subject.  That
makes it a lot easier for potential responders to identify where they
can help.

Some processes ignore the signal sent by C-c (SIGQUIT?).  You can
usually send SIGKILL with C-\, though.  Other options are C-z to put
the process in the background, and then killing it with the job id, or
using killall from another console/xterm.  Be careful with the latter,
though, since it will kill all of the processes with that name.
