I noticed this the other day when working on a new 8.0-RC1 system...
in my case I was using putty (Windows ssh client) to access the system
and maximised the window I had ee running in, and noticed ee just
dumped me straight to the prompt.

I am wondering if this has anything to do with the new tty subsystem
in 8.0, as this wasn't a problem I've experienced before under 7.x...

Maybe worth cc'ing ed@ to see if he has any thoughts?
