A related report:

Recently, I have had this happen with Midnight Commander. When I use the
ftp file system through our ftp-proxy, it is very sensitive about 
unexpected responses from the proxy and tends to hang very easily. 

This happened again and because I had several mc's running, I didn't kill
the one that went south, fearing that I might kill the wrong one. Instead
I clicked on the destroy button of the xterm it was running in. 

Soon after, I noticed that the mc process was still running and it sucked
up most cpu cycles. Maybe this is more of an xterm problem than a mc or
tcsh problem.
