The man command regularly dies after brought in foreground from suspension:

$ fg %3
man objdump
Error executing formatting or display command.
System command (cd /usr/man ; (echo -e ".pl 1100i"; cat
 echo ".pl \n(nlu+10") | /usr/bin/tbl | /usr/bin/groff -Tascii -mandoc |
ss) exited with status -1.
No manual entry for objdump
/usr/bin/groff:fatal error: wait: Interrupted system call
Signal 1

I wreckon the groff invoked by man is culpable. Is anyone else experiencing
this? Solution? 
(cygwin1.dll 1.0.7 on Win2K)

Maybe connected with this (nad maybe not): ctrl-c stops working in the bash
command window after a while - it works fine when the shell window is
opened. Stty -a still shows ^C for intr. Any ideas?
