Are you perhaps getting SIGTTIN/SIGTTOU in those processes?  I'm not
sure there's much we can do about that; if more/less are in the pipeline
I think they'll trigger that.  That sounds to me like you should have a
helper which backgrounds evince for you.  Like I said, if we are causing
that (or if we can do something that makes this works better that isn't
TOO much work), then let's talk.
