I Ctrl-C'ed a build job I was running in my bash shell. It continued to run in the background and print output to the stdout, however according to jobs -l no background job was running. Do we know what could've happened and how could I determine+fix it?

The process had likely dumped a lot of output to the terminal, which was simply still being spooled out to the screen after you sent the interrupt.
