I think this is most easily fixed by telling the code to ignore jobs in the
current shell for the purpose of job control; they're fictions to make
special effects easier.  I can't offhand see this is going to cause any
problems, but we'll just have to see.  Certainly you wouldn't expect to
be able to do job control on them.
