    Terminal message: There are Stopped Jobs

    Using Mandrake 9.0
    Opened a terminal and su'd to root.
    Did "updatedb" and then "locate".
    Did "rm filename then
    Tried to exit su and return to normal user mode, but got this message: "There are stopped jobs" and my terminal is still at the root prompt (#). Can't exit.
    How do I find out what the "stopped jobs" are? I'm not even sure what would have caused this message since the only thing I did was as explained above

    type the command: jobs
    which will show you what's stopped then you can start it and bring it to the front with: fg <job number>

    Well, that was simple enough.

    I've never had that happen before................didn't have a clue what was going on.
