Eww, don't do that.

} But anyway suggestions about eliminating the second Ctrl-Z are welcome.

    function autobg() {
	jobs -s >| /tmp/j$$
	while read jnum jdesc
	    bg %${${jnum#\[}%\]}
	done < /tmp/j$$
	rm -f /tmp/j$$

    function precmd() {

I really question whether this is the behavior you want, though.  You
might want to change the `bg ...' command in autobg to something like

	case $jdesc in
	(*( vi | vim | *emacs )*) ;;	# Don't autobg any editors,
	(*) bg %${${jnum#\[}%\]} ;;	# but anything else is OK.

or possibly something even more restrictive where you list the things
that you *do* want to autobg rather than those that you don't.
