Don't know how rm was compiled back then nor if it used static or share libraries, but it stopped when rm was deleted. If fact, I was upset that it stooped. I assumed commands stay in in ram so it can continue running.
I wish I could prove this but this happen many years ago. I haven't repeat that curious test since then, it was a one time thing.
