: I am curious, (have i forgotten?) why exactly do you need this?
: Traditionally, you can't suspend a login shell.

just open any xterm or kterm or gnome-terminal or whatever under
X and type suspend. And it will hang.

of all known terminals under X *only* 'xterm' has ability to send signal
'CONTINUE' to the process it is running.

for all other I guess I still could open another xterm find out the pid of
the stopped bash and send it 'KILL -CONT %pid' but that's awkward..
epsecially that there's the better way of doing this by just fixing bash.
