A user runs "emacs -nw" within xterm, and often stop them with CTRL-Z to
keep them in background. Now Emacs loops and hogs both memory and cpu after
shutting down X11 going to runlevel 3. Likely this was a leftover emacs from

I'd like to ask if there is a solution for this problem.
I've read the thread carefully but at last I've not seen
any real solution. is it allowed to remove the check

  if (last_terminal)
      error ("Attempt to delete the sole terminal device with live frames");

in delete_tty() of src/term.c or will emacs then loop

  if (NILP (force) && !other_visible_frames (f))
    error ("Attempt to delete the sole visible or iconified frame");

in delete_frame() of src/frame.c ... ?

For the case you posted, it is safe. delete_frame is called with force set to Qnoelisp, which is not NILP (force) so the test is not run.
I've checked that in, it fixes this bug.
