I cen verify that, also they don't repsond to ^Z.
I though this would be because of the wrong error checking of the
setsid calls (I did not yet update my hurd), so I did not report it yet.

BTW Mark, if you run screen, you will have working ^C and ^Z, and several
screens (create with ^a c, switch wih ^a n or ^a p). The new screen compiles
cleanly from source (but remove closeallfiles()).
