Yes, I understand that.  My concern is that less(1) should not attempt
to manipulate the terminal if it doesn't have a controlling terminal.

I agree that timeout(1) should be better about setting things up, but
that's a separate issue.  As Matthew noted, there appear to be two
distinct bugs here.  Should we split this?
