I only ifdef'd out the call for the ncurses case (slang is not affected).
There is a similar call in another part of the code which checks the flag
set in the handler. That works for the case I was looking at.  I didn't
test that with a child process running (just mc, and with the embedded
editor - I'm not sure how to set up a child process in the manner which
you suggest may not work).
