    This is an odd buglet. Here's exactly what happens:

    Start netscape as a foreground process
    While the focus is in the window netscape was started from, hit Ctrl-Z
    -- Nothing will appear to happen

    Change the input focus to the Netscape window
    -- 'Suspended' will appear in the xterm/rxvt (from the previous Ctrl-Z)

    Now fg/bg/etc. commands will work.

    Not necessarily even annoying, but kind of odd. I haven't bothered to
    track down why it happens.
