 I am using bash as my shell, and what an excellent shell it is! But, if I type 
Control-s at the prompt it causes bash
to hang! The only way to get out of this is to kill the xterm that started bash!

 Simply type Control-s at the prompt, it doesn't matter whether there have been 
any previous commands typed or not.

 Not sure! My environment settings are pretty standard, I'm using CDE and xterm 
and have tried seeing if typing an "stty
sane" makes any difference - it doesn't! I also do not have an ~/.inputrc
file that could be effecting readline.

Any help will be much appreciated as having to kill the shell is a pain!
