Description of problem:
This is related to the NOTABUG 55386 but since I'm not that bug's owner I
couldn't re-open it.  I have included steps to reproduce the bug here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat Linux 7.2 with current updates, including emacs and
emacs-nox.  Set defualt runlevel to 3 -- do not start X.
2. Log in to console.  Do not start X.
3. Type "emacs".
4. Type "control-x control-c"
5. Note that the terminal now no longer echoes.  
6. Type "reset" at the shell to fix things.
7. Start "emacs" again.
8. Suspened emacs by typing "control-x control-z"
9. Observe that the shell is fine now.

Actual Results:  Shell doesn't echo and requires 'reset'

Expected Results:  Shell does echo and does not require 'reset'

Additional info:

I have seen this bug on three different systems.  "->" indicates an
upgrade, all with installations upgraded to current patch levels.

I can't reproduce this on a vanilla+updates RHL 7.2 system with this procedure.
I don't experience any problems at all...
