While this has been fixed, I realized that I overlooked another
similar problem; try running vipw, suspend it with ctrl-Z and
continue with `fg'; the shell immediately reports that vipw has been
suspended(processes are marked as `TL' by ps command); another `fg'
seems to continue it, but vi(or whatever editor invoked by vipw)
doesn't handle the screen properly, even though it's responding to
the keystrokes.
Attached is a small code fragment that demonstrates the problem.
BTW, it behaves differently on -CURRENT and 1.2.6-RELEASE;
on -CURRENT, waitpid() returns after `fg' command followed by a ctrl-Z,
while on 1.2.6-RELEASE it never returns when suspended or continued.
Without WUNTRACED flag, the code seems to work the same way on both
versions of the OS.
Too bad I couldn't find it before the new release.
