The behavior of `jobs -p` is definitely, without a doubt, a bug

To Whom It May Concern:
I wrote most of this before I read through the Debian bug report process.
I'm actually not sure whether this is supposed to go to Debian or to the
kernel.org address; So I apologize if some of it is redundant or sounds a
bit weird; I assumed I'd be "creating a new thread", so I refer to this
thread as "that thread", etc.
If I've made any other errors, again apologizes in advance; it's the first time
I've worked with the Debian process, and I'm using dash on another platform, so
I don't have access to "reportbug", etc.
Also, if I come off a bit pissy, petulant, pedantic, or arrogant, it's only
because I have so many, many times *been* "that guy" -- someone who takes the
time and goes out of his way to write and file a bug report and send it through
the proper channels -- only have it basically dismissed out of hand. So when
I found myself in the position of not only reporting a bug, but having to
refute the incorrect arguments made that led to the bug report being dismissed,
and thinking about how this could have been fixed 8 years ago, it did irk me.
So yes, I was a bit peeved as I wrote it, it is absolutely nothing personal
(except in that it's some of my own emotional baggage).
So, once again, apologies, I truly mean no disrespect.
