I am Cc:ing the bash PTS for a comment.

Hi Matthias, can you please comment on this?  From
http://bugs.debian.org/337159#30 :

  The reason is that "fg" in Bash nowadays does not send SIGCONT to
  the job if Bash has seen from waitpid() that the job is already
  running.  ELinks expects to receive this SIGCONT, in order to
  know when it should try to take control of the terminal again.

  This worked correctly in Bash 2.05 but has been broken since 2.05a.

We can do that at a later point.
