mc plays with STOP signals generated when a process is not the
leader of a tty process group.  I'm astounded that I had this
working well enough to satisfy mc in the past but I definitely
broke it now.

It should be fixed in the latest snapshot.

Thanks for the heads up.  There are a lot of signal changes in
1.7.17 snapshots and you found a problem with them.
