Description Olivier Baudron 2001-05-11 12:09:30 UTC
This is probably not a bash bug, but I could not figure out where it comes
from. The problem is: when I "su" in a virtual console I get the message
"bash: no job control in this shell", and it is true that next I cannot
interrupt processes. Surprinsingly, this bug is not present if I "su" in an
xterm running under X.
On my system, almost all packages are up-to-date with the latest rawhide

Yet another effect of a broken /bin/login (#36839)

Thanks a lot for your advice and for the link to the latest util-linux.
I spent the whole day inside bash/termcap/readline/ncurses and was about to
become crazy!!!

Btw, another effect of this bug was that the virtual console is broken by emacs
when quitting.

Anyway, thanks again ;)))

THAT effect is a feature, of course. #include <vi/forever.h> ;) SCNR
