When running 'git commit' with environment variable EDITOR set to 'emacs -nw', emacs works correctly to edit the commit message unless CNTL-Z is used to suspend the session. The shell prompt appears correctly, but when 'fg' is used to resume the git/commit, emacs does not redisplay. CNTL-Z can be used again to get back to the shell, but ultimately the 'git commit' has to be killed (with 'kill').
