Cannot suspend shell (Ctrl+Z)

[latest Cygwin DLL and all updates]


I cannot suspend applications (like Midnight Commander) in a running 
shell (bash or Zsh) - nothing happens. Nevertheless when I run mc (for 
instance) in screen session then it works as expected:

% mc                                                                  ~

[1]  + 5752 suspended  mc

I vaguely remember that it used to be possible to suspend applications 
from a standard shell... Can anyone shed some light on this issue?
