PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

ctrl-s key combination freezes terminal screen. 



RESOLUTION

This is not a bug. ctrl-s works as a terminal control character to stop character output. To enable terminal output again, enter ctrl-q key combination.

This value may be differ depending on terminal settings. The following command displays the current settings.

$ stty -a
