ctrl+z (^z) is not working on ubuntu 11.10 #17

Hello, when using reptyr ctrl+c works correctly, but ctrl+z is not working. I have found at least one other person having the problem but have not found a solution. Thank you for your support.

Hm. I can confirm this behavior, but I am not sure quite what is causing it, at the moment. I'll investigate some time soon.

Note that it is likely difficult to make backgrounding work exactly as though the target were actually started in the new shell, for various technical reasons.

I can confirm this as well and it is easy to reproduce with vim.

I have the same problem, if anyone knows of a fix / hack to make it work I would be happy.

I just ran into this, too. It would be great if this could be fixed.

Can confirm the same behavior in debian wheezy.

One more confirmation (4.9/4.10 kernels, Gentoo).

One more confirmation (Ubuntu 16.04)
