Normally, the command "process handle -n false" produces an "do you want to
change ALL signals" prompt. When auto-confirm is true, this command essentially
becomes a no-op, since the confirmation logic automatically responds "no".

The description of this setting is "If true all confirmation prompts will
receive their default reply.", so it essence this is working as intended, but i
think it produces very surprising results (e.g. the above command is silently
ignored). I think it would be better to have this setting mean "just shut up
and do it", i.e., perform all actions without asking the usual "are you sure"
