I apologize.  Four messages ago you mentioned "some other shell
window", and I somehow misread this to mean that the terminal running
dd is not important.

So I now retried the whole thing with two xterms, one running the dd,
and another running the infloop.  I also had a third window running,
a Konsole with a blinking cursor.

I see the same behavior as previously, when I was using two Konsole
windows and Emacs with a blinking cursor.

This line is not blank.
