"emacs -nw" hangs in a terminal

Recently, emacs in a terminal started hanging:

  /usr/bin/emacs -nw --no-init-file --no-site-file

I had to kill it from another terminal window.

But I noticed /usr/bin/emacs points through alternatives to
/usr/bin/emacs-X11, so I started calling  /usr/bin/emacs-nox
directly.  (Actually I modified my emn script.)  This solves
the problem for me.

But "emacs -nw" has worked forever until very recently.
