This doesn't really answer your question, but one solution is:

In another xterm (I assume this is X11): pkill -CONT emacs

This does work for programs that don't insist on reading from the TTY
they're on, which is probably true for the X11 version of Emacs (I
prefer more spartanic editors myself *g*).
