Can you please do something about when ones does
$ emacs #which starts emacs in another window
C-c #which kills emacs

Why can't you ask there in the shell 'are you serious?'

As an example of the crap effects,
$ emacs file #and in that file type 3 short lines, then back in the shell:

Where did your three lines go?  not even a #file# backup!
Why can't you at least auto-save when you get such a signal?
Isn't that a wonderful time for an auto-save? Sure,
$ emacs&disown
is what we are supposed to do perhaps, but still, where's that safety
net?  I didn't do kill -9 you know.

The problem occurs mostly when the user gets his background jobs
confused, but that's besides the point.
