        Careful - is this behavior used as a feature during boot when
starting services?  I.e. you can ^Z and it will continue with the next
service; effectively backgrounding the service that's waiting.  I.e. is
this a feature (perhaps accidental) that people assume and rely on?  And
if so, is there another way to get the functionality, and is it important
to people?

        Perhaps I'm totally wrong here and misunderstood the issue.
