This is definitely a T bug, and ought to be fixed.

Public service announcement:  Remember, T development is a labor of love
- I may be wrong about this, but I was under the impression that no one
was getting paid to do it.  Bugs like this are pretty easy track down

or BACKTRACE to find the places where it's called, etc.), and the T
sources are readily available, at Yale at least.  Any help from users on
actual bug fixes is appreciated, and leaves time for Jim & David &
Richard to do more interesting things (like making suspend work on
