Ignoring signals isn't what should be done, it's setting the terminal
modes properly.

C-y sends SIGTSTP when it is read from the terminal (not when it's
typed; that's what makes it different from C-z) if ISIG is set in the
lflag element of the termios structure.

Are you sure it's getting SIGSTOP??  Nothing should be sending that at
