I like your idea with interrupting the process, but I am not sure whether that is acceptable in my case. The background processes are making network requests and receiving data. My first concern: will the network interaction be affected? Second: this would probably disrupt benchmarking the bandwidth usage (which is what X does, actually). I should be able to live with your original suggestion. I did a quick test and line mangling did not appear to be an issue in my case. Nonetheless, I will wait for a bit and see if anyone can find a more general and robust solution :)

Sounds like a reasonable suggestion, but is it not possible that different outputs might get mangled (within a line). Something like: X say output from x OUTPUT FROM OTHER PROCESS Comes out as: x sa**_OUTPUT FROM OTHER PROCESS_**y output from x
