[1]+ Stopped

I've been running some (convoluted) scripts that spawn processes and
suddenly receive STOP signals.  This has something to do with writing
to a terminal that is not properly connected?  What was this? [1]

I don't understand...  Sometimes a subprocess is allowed to write to
the terminal, but other times it is not (and is STOPped).
