Huh.  I guess so.  It does so for me, as well.

This problem sounded familiar so I did a little archive diving.  It was
reported before and I investigated it before.  I remember thinking that
this would be hard to fix owing to a race condition with signals in tty
code.  I can make this fail in various interesting ways even outside of
the pty/tty code, though.  So, I'm investigating why now.
