subshell (ctrl-o) not working properly

Subject: subshell (ctrl-o) not working properly

I just cross-compiled mc for a Linux/mipsel/uClibc target.

Everything runs fine, except the subshell (ctrl-o).

If I press ctrl-o, I can see what's in the background (i.e., operations I did from mc, without quitting it, like ls or free), but I can't execute any commands from the CLI (after pressing ctrl+o).
Whatever I press, I return to mc.

So it behaves as if there was no subshell support.

I compiled mc with these options:

./configure --target=mipsel-linux --host=mipsel-linux --build=i386-pc-linux-gnu --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --with-x=no --with-gpm-mouse=no --with-glib12 --with-subshell=yes --without-libintl-prefix --without-libiconv-prefix --enable-nls=no
More info:

# mc -V
GNU Midnight Commander 4.6.1
Virtual File System: tarfs, extfs, cpiofs, ftpfs, fish
With builtin Editor
Using included S-Lang library with terminfo database
With subshell support as default
With support for background operations
With mouse support on xterm

# echo $SHELL

# bash --version
GNU bash, version 3.1.0(1)-release (mipsel-unknown-linux-gnu)

I have bash as my shell in /etc/passwd.

Anyone have an idea what might be wrong?
