    This seemed to eliminate the problem for me (from Andrew's FAQ):

    (setq process-connection-type nil)

This could be a good work-around, but it would be better
if we could fix the underlying Emacs code to make this unnecessary.
However, that would depend on someone who works on Emacs on Mac OS
to figure out the right fix.

It's better to do this in Emacs than to advise every user to do it.
Is this a bug in ptys such that Emacs can't make them work,
or is it a bug in Emacs's pty support that could theoretically be
fixed in Emacs?
