Must be window-manager dependent, then.

} Or would the shell have to answer / re-emit the signal for this to work?

The shell and the emulator would have to deliberately synchronize
somehow, yes.  Since the shell generally doesn't have any connection
to the emulator (only to the pseudo-terminal device they share), this
would not be straightforward.

Hm.  I don't have any explanation, then.
