I know that you can restore the process by hitting fg and enter after you stop a job with ctrl+z, but I don't think I've ever intended to stop a job.. ever. e.g. I always bump it when typing ctrl+x in VIM.

How can I prevent my bash terminal from stopping jobs when I hit ctrl+z?


Have you tried using 'unset suspend' in ~/.vimrc or /etc/vimrc, or running vim with '-Z' (to disable suspend).
