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
