Thanks guys!  I ran kill -l to look for something like Michael just suggested 
but didn't know what the different signals meant.  I'll try this.

Also, I'll try a big cleanup of my init.el.  It's been evolving for over 20 
years since 18.57!  Every new emacs release, I try and clean it up some for 
deprecated functions and code that's not needed anymore because of new, 
built-in functions.  I know I have a lot of ugly stuff related to shell-mode 
and I'l see if I can remove most of it.
