I found this as well some time ago already when switching between two Plasma 
sessions, one on VT7 and one on VZ8. 

Even when I run something in the Konsole as a long running command it gets 
paused at some time. Yet when I first run screen and then run the command in a 
screen session it continues to work.

I believe this to be part of systemd-logind session/seat management, but I 
didn´t find out yet for sure whether my belief matches reality.

I do not agree with that new behavior and would like to have the old behavior
