Your're a star! Now that I've changed my terminal settings, my shell
is behaving impeccably.  As you can imagine, having to kill a shell
that contained various history commands or directory stacks was
a complete pain.

I thought this would be down to something simple, but I had no
idea ^s was handled by the terminal.

Thanks for your help, it is appreciated!
