Is there any way to pause (^Z) it?
Looks like an Irix-specific bug in scsh (0.5).
Under several other versions of Unix I tested, ^Z works just fine to
suspend a scsh job. Also, the scsh procedure `(suspend)' works, and even
manually doing: `(signal-process (pid) signal/stop)' works. But under Irix
(5.3 or 6.2), none of these work.
^Z acts like you didn't type anything at all, and the other two act like
they sent a signal that was ignored. And in fact if I run scsh under GDB
and try `(suspend)', GDB claims the scsh process is getting a SIGWINCH!
I figure this is bizare enough behavior that someone may have reported this
to scsh-bugs before -- hey guys, is this a known bug?
