Thanks for the pointers. So there also the suggested workaround is to 
inhibit the SIGTTOU signal. Except the links propose to add it right 
before calling import readline in the code. I like that better than 
calling it in the gnucash binary.

Should be re-enable the signal after readline is imported ? I'm not too 
comfortable with blocking signals for no good reason...
