Tracking down the ^Z problem in vim

Coders who use vim a lot may be familiar with an irritating race condition that appears on some systems: You save the source code, suspend vim using ^Z, and then immediately start typing a command (such as "make"), and sometimes the first few characters of the command are lost. The obvious workaround is to always wait for the shell prompt after typing ^Z, but this gets annoying after a while. I decided to dig deeper and see if I could find a quick fix. Read more.
