Subject: Tests hang in SetControlChars when run in the background
The tests hang if run in a job in the background just after test 7 in SetControlChars().

    perl Makefile.PL
    make test &

Why would you do this?  I was building a large rpm and put it in the background.

The module is specifically for reading from the console, it is not guaranteed to play well when detached from a real tty. I will consider making the tests discover whether they can safely use the STDIO for a future release. Thanks.
