sftp interrupt hang

When downloading a file and the connection hangs due to crappy wifi,
sftp just says "0.0 KB/s - stalled -". I hit ^C to kill it, but it
just prints "Interrupt" and doesn't do anything, no matter how many
times I hit ^C or how long I wait. Is this expected behavior? Or
am I expected to kill the ssh connection itself with "~."?
