Hm, yes, it seems to be weirder than I thought. I'm not bothered with
this problem any more using Emacs, but I've recently seen it with ftp
(the normal client, installed as /usr/bin/ftp), where backgrounding one
ftp session caused another one, in the foreground, to spontaneously stop
and background itself when attempting to do console output.  Weirdly,
when I now try to reproduce it, I can't.

Things were really bad with a -current from November 15th, and I thought
updating again on the 21st fixed it, but it seems the problem is still
there, but now only strikes sporadically.
