Indeed job control might definitely be something. I remember having to do
-DNOPROSPECTOFWORK on mksh under Plan9.

I start it within an existing terminal window. Something I am now considering is
to try to give some more "meat" to my terminfo (now just stubs from old
pdcurses) and I think I might get some inspiration from the vt emulation that
exists on Plan9:

I might even be able to just import some code for /sys/src/cmd/vt for that
library. No idea if that will help me. 

I sprinkled my libterm.a stubs library with printf for every function but I
could not see that one of those functions were called before the crash. I got a
tip to try to debug with a tool called "acid" so I guess that is my next step...

Executing zsh after activating the vt emulator did also not change the error.
