Try to run the following programme:

#include <signal.h>
#include <stdio.h>
void handler(int i){
printf("One more minute, I don't want to die yet, let me just check my mail..\n");

This will show you that it's nothing magic that Netscape is doing:
it's just handling the signal 20's yourre sending to it by
pressing ^Z. Anyone can do that, even netscape!
