i am running R version 2.14.0 alpha (2011-10-03 r57154) in an X11
terminal.  i build from source.
i often use ctrl-Z to pause the session and return to it via fg.  i
find that R hangs upon fg -- it does not
respond to ctrl-C and ctrl-\ takes some time to give a shell back.
Problem is not present in my
linux build of r57208.
