        I have reproduced this on a uniprocessor machine and determined
that it is a bash bug. I will submit a bash bug report and sample
patch that fixes the problem (but may be incorrect in other ways), and
will cc it to linux-kernel. Look for the subject "Patch(?): bash-2.05/jobs.c
loses interrupts."

        I have not yet investigated the other report of "sluggish" behavior.
