Correct. This is longstanding behavior. Stop signals are ignored if
there is no parent process. Apparently, the theory is that since
SIGSTOP is a UNIX thing, it makes no sense to stop a process if no other
process is around to recognize that fact. This prevents a user from
typing CTRL-Z and creating a suspended process which requires restarting
from another window.
