Emacs arranges for C-g to generate a signal SIGINT.  That is, it sets
up C-g to have the effect that is by default produced by C-c, the
keyboard interrupt character.

So to know how to get C-g to work with filterm, you will need to
understand (1) what filterm does to propagate signals to the program
whose I/O it is filtering, and (2) how to cause C-g generate an
interrupt for the foreground part of the filtering pipe.

You could start by looking at what C-c does when you run Emacs thru
filterm: does it, by any chance, produce the same effect as C-g in the
unfiltered Emacs?
