Oh, I get that here with mupdf.  It's because SIGTTOU is delivered after
the processes get the SIGCONT because of the attempt to write to a TTY
from a background process, presumably less.  Try `mhshow -noconcat -part
2'.  See `ps f' with and without the -noconcat and you should see the
lack of a pager.

Cheers, Ralph.
