control-Z - shell escape - vanished with 3.1

  • I upgraded from 2.96 to 3.1 and now I can no longer use control-z to get back to the shell (I do not want to spawn a new shell). Can I get this facility back? Without it (I often use serial connections to administer systems) joe is useless to me.

      It's usually ^K Z to get back to the shell: ^Z is move left word.  You can remap this if you want.

      Let me know if ^K Z is not working.

       
    • I encountered the same problem. Try CTRL-[-Z for the shell instead of CTRL-Z
