If you use zsh...
Authored by: discordantus on Jul 16, '03 06:45:53PM

if you happen to use the z shell, you should know that you need to end the command in '&!' instead of just '&'. Since zsh tries to clean up after itself, it'll sig-hup the jobs when you exit the terminal. puttin the bang after the ampersand makes it disown the job, and it will ignore it from then on.

if you forget the bang, you can always manually disown the job by typing "disown".
