Hi Mike,

        Sorry for the extreme delay in getting back to you.  The 
problem seemed simple enough at first, but then it became obvious that 
the problems wiere bigger: the sigwinch handler for resizing the screen 
(which runs when you resume after suspending) does quite a bit that 
maybe it shouldn't do (like assume we're in editing mode). 
        The bigger poblem is the longjmp() in the handler does exactly
what we ask it to, i.e. jump back to the main loop, even if we're
reading or writing a file. I decided to disable the handler when doing
these critical things.  This will likely need osme testing before an
official release.  I will put up a testing tarball as well, but the
patch is attached.  Please let me know what you think.

Also, who originally found this bug, so I can credit them?
