This looks correct to me and in fact I see the behaviour you report on 2.6.23
when running it. If I tell it to ignore SIGTTOU that also then behaves as
expected.

If
your pgrp is not the pgrp of the tty
and you are not ignoring TTOU
and you are not orphaned (as a group)

Then we are *supposed* to send you SIGTTOU and kick you back
into touch.


This is so that if you do

someapp
^Z
bg
otherapp

And someapp wants to change the tty settings it blocks back to the shell.

This is correct behaviour and behaviour we've had for years.
