The problem isn't any lack of severity; the problem is the shell's job
control code isn't structured to handle this well.  Short of a hack to
fix some subset of cases, which it would be best to avoid as it's likely
to make the real problem worse, it probably means a major rewrite of job
handling: so don't hold your breath.
