i wonder:  multitail has the `-j' switch to make it read from stdin.
numerous times have i forgotten about this and piped into it without
this switch.  since i use screen, the particular pty becomes unusable,
and screen itself gets busy delivering beeps/flashes.  because screen
doesn't honor commands in this situation, i cannot even go to another
console to kill multitail, and multitail doesn't respond to ctrl-c or

i ended up power-cycling the computer.  very, very annoying!  there are
several possible solutions:  check to see if stdin is a terminal or
a pipe.  or check for several "wrong" commands in a row and stop the
show.  could this please be considered for a future release?
