Description of Problem:

RedHat 7.3 release. 
How Reproducible:  
Press C-x C-s in pico. 
Additional Information:  
This behavior occurs in other versions as well.

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-08-07 22:22:33 UTC
No, it doesn't crash..  What you're doing, is pressing CTRL-S, which
is XOFF flow control.  This causes the terminal to no longer send data.
Press CTRL-Q to re-enable flow control.

Just don't press CTRL-S when running pico or other applications, it is
working as designed.
