One way to address the issue is to reduce your server RESTOREINTERVAL
value. This is the simplest solution.
Another is for you or your AIX admin to render the restore interface
command more sophisticated...to have the dsmc run as a child of a
control process which intercepts Ctrl-C (SIGINT) to then cancel the
restore (which is non-trivial, given the client interface to this task).
On the server side, you might have a cron job check for lingering RRs
before the backups window, to dispose of them.

Is there a parm for the Unix client to say restartable restore=no?
