Hi Robert,

actually I run phenix on a MacPro, directly as an application, so  
there is no open terminal window - but yes, I guess I could find the  
process from a new window, suspend the whole phenix gui and restart  
later. However, I think it would be more useful to be able to  
temporarily suspend individual long runs, just to do some other quick  
jobs (in phenix or outside).
