rsh starting a background process


i want rsh to start konsole in the background on a remote machine and then quit without first waiting for the konsole process to end. my command line looks like this:

rsh remote_host 'setenv DISPLAY blah:0 ; konsole &'

and i want it to return immediately so i can exit the shell that started rsh. putting the above line (the rsh process) in the background causes the rsh process to be suspended immediately and thus i can't exit the shell that started it.

thanks for the help.
