Hi Chris,

umm, I know, this is not what you want to hear.

The latest version has still an unresolved hanging problem.
I can reproduce the following behaviour:

Starting tcsh in TeraTerm telnet client window (via inetd as service ->
telnetd -> login) as login shell. Start a command: `ls -C' works.
Change window size, start `ls -C' again. Now the command is working
as before but it never returns to the prompt. `ps -ef' from another
shell displays:

  system   1001      1  -1  11:34:15 /usr/local/sbin/inetd.exe
  system   1134   1001  -1  11:52:08 /usr/local/libexec/in.telnetd
 corinna   1135   1134   2  11:52:13 /usr/bin/tcsh.exe
 corinna   1144   1135   2  11:52:19 <defunct>

As I mentioned, this is 100% reproducable. I tried to reproduce it
under strace control (startimg tcsh, some cmd, change win size,
start cmd via strace) but unfortunately strace hangs on starting
it already. The output file remains empty :-(

This doesn't happen with bash. Sometimes I get the feeling that 
tcsh is somewhat hard to please...
