re: bin/51556: less(1) generates SIGTTOU if lacking a controlling terminal

i'm convinced there are two bugs here.  the timeout one, and
that less tries to do terminal ops that trigger signals when
not properly able.

the original report fails if you use 'cat' instead of 'less'.

i'd not be so worried about the less bug, but for me i can't
^C out of it.  ^Z does work, but having a shell i can't sent
an interrupt to is pretty serious situation i'd like to avoid
having happen if the tools can.
